I've already suggested that as well.

I've pretty much covered all the bases on this, just short of actually scripting the function. I'm looking into that some more later today.

A problem once recognized is half corrected". I feel comfortable that Max and Mr. Shaft have clearly grasped my dilemma. I still regularly receive 10 - 20 pictures embedded in an Outlook e-mail and wish to save them. In Outlook Express I don't recall ever having a problem saving the entire bunch with a few seconds of time and a few clicks. This issue may not be up there with global warming and peak oil but it is a major frustration nonetheless.. especially when it does not need to be this way. This flaw seems such another glaring oversight on the part of MS designers. What are those folks smoking anyway?

At least I feel better that I am not imagining this to be a problem or that I may be missing out on a simple work-around solution. I'm at a dead end here so I'll continue to stay tuned in here and have a few stiff cocktails every time this issue surfaces.
