How to view DWG/DXF e-mail attachments on a mobile phone?

A - answer There is an alternative way of viewing CAD files using the cloud service Autodesk A360 Team (much safer than e-mails) and use its embedded viewer to view and share documents instead of using e-mails.

You just need to install the free mobile application AutoCAD 360 (for Android or iOS - depending on the type of the mobile phone or tablet). E-mail attachments (both DWG and DXF) will be then directly opened in your local mobile AutoCAD (you don't need to care about the underlaying cloud service) and - beside interactive viewing - you can also edit and markup 2D CAD drawings on your smartphone.
