I just received an E-Mail (typical forwarded message about Kennedy
and Lincoln similarities...)that has large text and Photographs
I tried to highlight it all and ctrl-C it and paste it (ctrl-V) into
WORD, but the photos didn't carry over.
I tried saving as an eml - nope.
I tried as an html - no pictures transferred, just the words with
boxes for the photos which were not there.
How can I save a received E-mail message in toto as a file with
photos embedded where they were in the text?
Once I have it saved - how do I then use it - maybe put it into
Obviously I can use Forward - I don't want to do that - I want to
save the thing.
A reply to both Peter and Jens.....
First - yes I can save each photo individually. But the E-Mail
contains many and I want a way to save the message in toto w/o having
to play editor!
Second - looks like, from Jens reply, that there is not a way to do
this w/o complex machinations involved.
I can "select" and copy (ctrl-C) text and photos off of a web site and
then paste (ctrl-V) them into WORD and get everything (Text and Pics)
- why not out of an E-Mail...?
It would be nice - in the next version of SeaMonkey, to be able to
copy an E-Mail entirely - text and pics - to save for use later.
Then be able to 'Paste' it into a composition (add to or subtract
from) and send it. HINT....
then, can you not select all the images, right click and Save Images As?
Yes, I could save each individual picture.....as a file
Then I would (probably) have to try to insert each and every one back
inside the copy of the text where each one was supposed to go and hope
it didn't get all screwed up...and not be sure what the recipient got.
Long story short - I shouldn't have to mess about like that just to copy
an E-Mail with pictures.
Right now, this is just some Lincoln/Kennedy life events coincidences
E-Mail that was forwarded over and over again - BUT - someday it might
be important that I be able to do this....so....I want to investigate it.
I suspect from what I am reading here that each person who forwards
something is sending God Knows What kind of code or message type and SM
has to interpret it.
or is it all pretty much standardized?
