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

Internet Explorer only saving images as BMP files.

Answer:

This issue is caused when Microsoft Internet Explorer has a damaged or corrupt file to resolve this issue follow the below instructions.

Empty your Temporary Internet files.
Delete any Unknown or Damaged objects by clicking Tools and Internet Options. Within the General tab of Internet Options click the Settings button. Click the "View Objects" button. Delete any objects that have a status of "Unknown" or "Damaged".
