Hi All, When I receive a email(Hotmail IE6 WinXP) with a *.JPEG attachment, I click on the file attached, a new page opens.
Name of File: abcd.jpg Virus Scan Result: No Virus Found
When I click on 'Download File', no dialog box ('save file as' or 'open with') appears, but it automatically opens the *.jpeg file in a browser page. If I go to File "Save As" I get the option of save as "Web Page",if I Right Click on the picture the only option I have is to save as a "Gif" file,can anyone tell me why I don't get the normal dropdown "Save As" box where I have the option to save as .jpeg,and how I can rectify this. Regards tonyq
Hi jolorna I have tried forwarding to another account but got the same result,when I get the chance I will try opening the .jpeg attachment on a different computer to see if that makes a differance. Regards tonyq
appears to be a quirk of hotmail - you should have the option to save the image as a BMP too (saving it as .gif will reduce it to 256 colours) - save as BMP and convert it to .jpg with something like Irfanview click here or even MS Paint
