    Hello all,

    From time to time I get an email from people that has multiple images embedded in the email (not as attachments).

    Does anyone know of a simple way to download all those images as once to keep from having to a right click and save as for every single image?

    I am running Firefox 3.0 and generally use Gmail.

    Thanks
    David

    While those are embedded, they are still individual files - just like if you want
    multiple pictures from a website - you have to get them one at a time.

    I would say the easiest/best way is to POP3 gmail. When the emails are on
    your hard drive and you use Windows Mail or Outlook Express you have
    many options available that are not available on websites. Since you use
    Firefox, you might prefer to use Thunderbird for a client.

    Using a client does not prevent you from still going to the website if you
    want. You can find copies of all your emails sitting in the sent items
    folder at gmail - unless you deleted them.
