Workaround: Copy An Image in OE

Outlook Express

If, using Outlook Express, can't save a picture embedded directly in an email, this is what you do:

  1. Open the email
  2. Click Reply
  3. Type anything
  4. Exit Outlook Express
  5. If prompted, say yes to (Save as Draught)
  6. Open Outlook Express
  7. Alt-Click on image
  8. Select "Save Picture As"
  9. Choose the destination folder
  10. Click "Save"

We Always Do It That Way

I'm certain Microsoft will tell you that this is not a workaround. They designed it this way so you would have to work hard to copy a picture that isn't yours.
