    Copying animations

    I usually copy cute animations from forwarded emails, but lately when I right-click to copy, the image says the file type is not specified. What does this mean and why can I copy some and not others? Thanks.

    When do you get this message? And just for background: which email program/site? Is there a Save As or Save Picture As option for the image?

    Just to chip in Jeff, I have had emails and the animations are embedded in the email, if you save as it only saves as gif/bmp

    Re: Copying animations

    I'm using OE and the images are embedded in the text message, not as an attachment. It does have the "save picture as" but when I do, the error message comes up as file type not specified. More specifically, I've noticed they aren't able to be copied if they're forwarded from several sources, or 3rd parties, as opposed to ones I receive from a single source or email, although I don't know why this should make a difference.
