Outlook Express 6
Internet Explorer 7

When someone send an email with pictures embedded in the email, we can right click on the picture and select "Save As".  We get the error: "the system cannot find the file specified".
Curiously, we do NOT see any files listed the "Attach" row.  There are multple pictures that have been pasted into the email but we can not save them.

I have checked Outlooks security  settings.  Attachemnts are not blocked.

Any ideas?
