I have been sent an email, using outlook 2003, where the images have been embedded in the email, and i would like to save them to my computer, they are animated gifs and if you right click you only get the option to save as bmp.

If i try and forward the message, right click on the image and properties, it shows as being stored in "outbind://17/1_multipart?4_image003.gif" where is this magical outbind location, and how can i get the files from it.

cheers.

I would think those emails are actually HTML emails.
Follow the procedures here to see if you can save in any other format other than BMP
