    Someone recently sent me about five separate emails with photo attachments. When I tried to open them in mail, only one of the five showed the photos. The others all showed the text, and the little jpg icon, but wouldn't show or let me download the photos. This is the first time that I have ever had something like this happen. I know that it wasn't something wrong with the emails themselves, because when I tried opening them on my windows PC they all downloaded right.:confused: Does anyone know what would've caused mail to do this, or how I can make it download the photos right next time? Is there some simple setting that I need to change? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    Go to the File tab under Mail in the Menu Bar and go to save attachments. That should work. You should also be able to drag the .jpg icon from the email directly to your desktop.
