    I was at a wedding last night and a friend of mine just emailed me the pictures. There are at least 50 and they are all attachments. How can i add them to iphoto without having to open each one, download the attachment, and then copy it into iphoto. They also should appear in the actual message itself, but instead a blue box with a question mark appears where each one should be. Is there a setting for safari or something i have to change for it to work?

    PS. This is a hotmail account.

    Thanks, Matt

    If you have an address set up with Apple Mail forward the email to that. There is a button to save all pictures at once to the directory of your choice then all you have to do is import into iPhoto.

    how old is your hotmail account? if it is old (ie. at least 3 years old), you can install httpmail, which allows you to use your Hotmail account in Mail. It's a really great hack, it's much more convenient to use Mail than the actual Hotmail site. It only works on old accounts, though.
