Windows 8 Mail App - Issues with Exchange 2003 - Attachments do not work

I am irritated that out of the Box Windows 8 mail App, will not download attachments if your exchange server is a 2003 server. I also have noticed that if you Open up Windows Fax and Scan, the forward as email button is grayed out. Appears it does not talk to windows 8 email app?


Also if you add two different accounts to windows mail app, one an Exchange, and other a Google account, which contacts appears in people? It seems to only use the exchange for auto complete when sending out emails from both accounts, but doesnt appear to use google contacts at all?


Is there any ETA on updates to at least fix this attachment issue, which is a silly issue.
