Just open your email program and email them to yourself then open them in your Mail App on your Android and choose to save them to your phone.

I already tried that.  When I open them in Outlook on my phone, I can view them but no option to save.  Even if I hold my finger down on the photo I don't get the option to save it.

What model of Droid?  After you've viewed it in the email simply download it and then go check your gallery.

When I do that it doesn't show in the gallery.  If I tap the picture and then click "details"  it shows a path to the sdcard.

Try setting the default save location in settings.  If you tell me which model of Droid I may be able to help you change that.

Nope.  I want to save photos that are e-mailed to me.

So the same functionality should apply to emailed photos.  There ABSOLUTELY has to be a way you just need to find it.  Whether it's holding down on the picture or hitting the menu button or something onscreen.

for some reason after a "reboot" the holding down the picture now works.

Thanks
