When my husband send a JPEG as an attachment from his Mac e-mail to my Lotus Notes or yahoo e-mail it opens the image and I cannot save the file as a JPEG. What am I missing? Is there something he can do differently? To him the attachment looks fine.

Of course you can save the inline attachment as a JPEG. Just right-click it.

When I right click I get Document Properties, Copy etc but Save as is not an option. I can highlight and copy into a word document but I cannot save as a jpeg.

Try dragging the image from where it's lodged in attachments, to the desktop. What application would you normally use to open a .jpg image? Hopefully that will open the image. Then use File > Save As.

The same action should work with a browser, if you drag the attached .jpg across the browser icon. I've tested it with both a .gif and a .jpg, using Camino (a lesser relative of FFox).

I'm leaving now to go and find myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
