Supposedly in Outlook 2010 you can right-click on embedded images and get the "save as" option. About 90% of the time when a GIF or any other image is embedded the only option I have is "copy." Is there a setting that needs to be adjusted so I can "save as" and in the original format?

Oh my, not sure if I know what is meant by "external content." In the past when there an image appears in the body of an e-mail I thought that would be considered "embedded." How do I know the difference between embedded & external content? Appreciate your quick response.

if you can view the image when offline or when you have outlook configured not to download images, its embedded. Embedded images may also show as attachments.

Thought I answered this quite sometime ago. Guess not! Yes, the images are "embedde." Most of the time I cannot save in native format. Usually wants to save all images as either PNG or BMP

BMP format is normal for embedded images. Png should be a native image format though - it, along with gif and jg are supported in HTM. One way to get the images in the correct format is to use File, Save as, HTML. This saves the message as an HTML page and the images.

Thanks but I want to save in the native format. If it is a GIF (animated) file most of the time it will not save as an animation and much of the time my only choices are PNG or BMP, yet a friend of mine who also runs Office 2010 can save as an animated GIF. I'm a retired old lady so enjoy doing the fun stuff, like using animations. Frustrating when it works for one person but not the other
