I opened up my AOL email account and tried to compose a new email so I could send an attachment (picture from my phone), but the paperclip (attachment) isn't lit up for me to click on. Does the iphone not let you send attachments or am I missing something in the settings menu?

First, the photo must be saved as a file you can open on your computer.
Next, open your Yahoo mail account and click Compose. When the new email screen opens, type in the recipients and a subject just like any other new email you want to send. At the bottom of the screen [next to the Send button] click on the paperclip icon. Then browse to the file you want to attach & click open.
Have you tried the AOL mail app, it may allow attachments, but I can't try it as I don't have an aol account? If not then..
Have you set up your AOL account on your ipad email under settings, mail contacts calenders, icloud, should be your aol account (ask if you don't know how).

You have to program your email address into your phone is what it's saying.
So ya need to go to Settings, go down to Mail Contacts Calendars, tap Add Account.
Then whatever you email address is. Yahoo, Gmail, AOL. Tap the one you have, Enter your name, your email address, your password, Tap Next on the top right.
It'll "verify" your account, by signing into it. Once it's signed in and the email address is attached to your phone. You can then hit the home button (bottom middle), Go to your pictures, Find the picture you want to email.
tape the box icon with the arrow on the very bottom left of the pic. Select Email Photo, It will "attach" it to a new email. Then type in the persons email address, and your message, Then hit Send on the top right.
Then there ya go. Picture, emailed and sent :)
