    Hi ...

    When ever I try to save a JPG or GIF file imbedded in an e-mail body, I
    right click and the can only save the file as a BMP. This has happened in
    the past few months and I have been keeping up to date with all my XP Pro
    and Explorer 6.0 updates. I suspect maybe something there has change a
    setting but I cna't find it.

    Thanks

    Thanks for your reply ...

    I have read alot of stuff including emptying temp files and clearing out
    dowloaded program files etc ...

    That did not do anything to help ... I have never had any problems copying
    image files (GIF or JPG) from a website

    The only thing I can do for now is to import into Outlook Express and save
    the files from there ... at least untill I find a solution, perhaps there is
    a setting that I can change some where ...
