Can't Save Outlook Messasge as HTML File

When trying to save an Outlook 2003 eMail message as an HTML file, outlook saves the html file, but dos not create the matching resource folder.  Thus when you open the html file, the embeded objects (pictures, etc.) show as empty boxes.  I think this may be a security issue that started after the installation of some automatic security update from Microsoft.

If its an html email you received and you can see the pics in the email, when saving as html it appears that images are not downloaded to your local environment. Being an html email it references links to a website and so the saved html as that in.
Maybe right click on a picture you cant see and click on properties, what is the url?

I created a test HTML email, pasted a photo into it, and emailed to myself.  I received the email and it displays as expected, photo and all.  The source refers to the image as: src="cid:image001.jpg@01CB52A5.F36DEC60.  I tried to save as an html file, but although the html main file was saved, the matching resource folder was not created.

perhaps outlook treats it as an attachment even though its displayed within your email and so this is why.

Nope.  Can't save attachment, and even it was an attachment, when saving as an html file, outlook would still create the resource folder even it didn't have anything to put in it.  This use to work perfectly.  I have seen postings similar to this with Outlook 2007.

ok, in my o2007 install I am unable to create a resource folder. The only way I manage to save the image is to save as mht. I think you can then use word or something to open up that mht and save as html (which I have not tried).

I've googled this and I'm giving up.  Images can't be saved when saving as html from Outlook.

Googled this and there is no solution.  I'm convinced images can't be saved when saving outlook emails as html files.
