    Example: When i drag images or files from an email to my desktop such as photo.jpg that are all named the same, it always makes me replace the first photo.jpg or the second photo.jpg won't be put on my desktop. Is there a way to force it to rename the second photo.jpg to photo2.jpg or something so i don't have to decide to replace or only have one image?

    Unfortunately, the Mac OS copy system isn't as advanced as Vista's is (never thought I'd say that, but it's true and does bother me at times). There might be third party apps that can handle it better, but I am not familiar with any.

    Instead of dragging, use the Save button for attachments, or right-click on the image and choose save image.
