    Hey, you guys are the greatest and I'm hoping you can help with another problem! Animations sent thru Office Outlook can only be saved as a .bmp and are no longer animated; whereas in OE they can be saved as .gifs. Is the .bmp just an Office Outlook thing that can't be changed, or is there a way around it? Can insert an animation, just can't save one! Thanks!

    Hi Spazzy

    This link here
    Save Embedded Pictures in Their Original Format
    gives you a macro to use with a button.

    Once it is setup, this will enable you to save your attachments (except blocked attachments) to the file type you need.

    Let us know if that works or not.
