    I just got an e-mail from my neighbor who having problems with his Mac and mail application... I think he uses Eudora. Anyway all the e-mail said was:

    "Can you help me? I am losing picture attachments when I transfer emails to a desktop folder. They end up as broken 'cookies'."

    I have no idea how to help him. I use Mail (mac), and I thought it would just be the same, but I don't even know where to start.

    Thanks for any help and advice.
