saving jpeg attachments in hotmail

  tonyq 11:41 25 Mar 2006

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.

I don't get the normal dropdown save dialogue box when trying to save jpeg attachments,but do get the normal dropdown save box when opening other types of attachments.
