Using SeaMonkey 1.1.14 email client, I tried to save a MS created

file.eml and loading the file in SM next, there was only a text
reference ole0.bmp and the image was gone. Tried also to force file
type .html without more success.
How to possibly save a rich message with embedded images to a file
with images correctly? Isn't that possible?

when saving, try clicking on the drop down and save as html, then
don't forget to remove the eml from the name. Did that work?
I expect you mean what I already also had tried:
SM File>Save as>File
Save as type: Dropdown - html
and remove eml from the name
1) No; opening this file.html from Seamonkey or from Firefox holds
only a text reference ole0.bmp and no image visible.
2) The same happends if I right click on file.html or file.eml and
select Open with>Seamonkey from the context menu.
3) But I found out one way it works:
If I spesifically starts the Semonkey Email client and use
File>Open_File and select file.eml, then the image is displayed
correct in the message.
The task still is to save it as a file.html so that it can be loaded
in a web browser or OpenOffice.org to export it as pdf.
If you use a free PDF printer driver like CutePDF (cutepdf.com), you
can "print" directly to PDF from SM, or from any other program that
can print, for that matter.
Yes, I forgot that option which I use sometimes. As I already had Adobe
Acrobat 5 on Windows (icluded Destiller and PDFWriter), I tested the
latter from SM on Windows and it worked.
But on Linux? I just installed PDFedit, but it doesn't look to work like
a printer, just as a standalone application. Maybe Cups-pdf is a
But of interest, can't also Seamonkey write to PDF files in the same way
that Firefox does?
FF isn't an email program, and no it doesn't write to
pdf file. Either you have a FF addon installed, or you
have something installed to your OS
