Can't send attachments from iOS apps

I have an iPhone and iPad, both on iOS 6. Email works fine, but if I try and send a file from within any app, it looks like it works - but it doesn't. This is the case for the two different mail accounts I have set up (one Gmail, one Exchange) and it's driving me round the twist.

When I try and send a file from within an app, it brings up a new email message, which I can address just as normal. Hit send and it disappears as if it is being sent. But the email isn't sent, doesn't arrive, doesn't appear in my sent email, or an outbox as unsent. It just...vanishes.
If I attach a photo from within the Mail app, that works fine. But if I go into Photos, open a photo, and then send from within the Photos app...it doesn't work. Suggests to me it's not a problem with my mail accounts setup, but something about how apps talk to Mail.
If you can suggest anything that might solve this, I will love you until the end of days.
