    Downloading Pictures (XP Pro (SP2))

    I have switched over to Outlook 2003 as my email program. However, when someone sends me an embedded picture and I want to save it, I right-click and save. However, all gif and/or jpg files will only save as a bmp file. So, where is the option to change that to gif and/or jpg?

    This is annoying, isn't it? I'm pretty sure we've had numerous threads on this and hopefully if you search a bit you'll find a workaround.

    Outlook actually uses IE to save pictures. See if Internet Explorer saves images as bitmaps (.bmp Files) this helps.
