    Question How to save a photo from an email, please?

    Hi,

    I received 2 pictures as attachments in an email that I want to save (and set one as wallpaper). I downloaded them and got a message "Attachment Saved". The Menu key offers no options. I went to Gallery and they are not there anywhere.

    I did a forum search before posting this new thread, and found this:
    http://www.fascinateforums.com/forum...-messages.html . I don't have any "Downloads" option in my Gallery, so this didn't seem to be able to fix my problem.

    I am really puzzled by this. I have fiddled and fiddled and can't figure it out. (I even checked the online manual... nada!)

    Anyone? Please?!!

    Thank you!

    Lynn

    From a Yahoo account. This makes a difference?

    Based on Siegan's post, and as an experiment, I sent myself 2 photo attachments from my Gmail account. Still can't seem to save them. ???! Help!

    Thanks!

    ok so when you have the email in your inbox, you have the two buttons below the image (download, preview) correct?

    And if you click download it should come up and say "fetching download" and show the picture directly from the gallery. I am assuming this is where the problem is?

    Try going under "My Files" in applications and see if you have a download folder there. That's where it stores by default (if you have an SD card installed at least)

    With my (Yahoo) email open in my INBOX, the email says: "Attachments" and lists each photo by name below that. I have NO "Download" or "Preview" options (not on the screen or in MENU).

    The only option I have is to tap on the name of a photo which downloads it (shows me a bar with % downloaded while it does it), then says "Attachment Saved" and then opens the full size photo.

    At that point, I seem to have no other options. MENU key has nothing.

    ???!

    PS Found the photos in MY FILES, and if I tap on one, it brings it up full size. But no options are presented. MENU key = nada! ????!

    Tickers, you have interesting things going on
    Try turning off your phone, then turn back on again
    This should force the media scan and hopefully your pictures will be found easier.
    After your phone is back on, and the media scan complete, now check your gallery for the pictures.
    Where ever you found then using the file explorer is where they will show up in your gallery.
    In your case, it sounds like they are on the root of your sd card.
    Try this and see how you fair.
    I'm off to bed, so I'll have to wait until tomorrow to see how you made out.

    Good morning back, Deja! THANK YOU for your posts!

    Well, last night I fiddled some more (before I read your suggestion of turning it off) and remembered that I had successfully saved a picture attachment early on in having my phone. I remembered that the picture had been sent from Comcast, so as a test, I sent a new picture last night to my Yahoo acct from Comcast -- and I was able to save that photo to my SD card. YES, I KNOW! And the real mystery of it all is that once that photo showed up in the Gallery, so did the OTHERS that SHOULD have been there earlier!

    I know!!! It's VERY confusing, but I assure you guys I am not making this stuff up!!! PLUS, I am really trying hard to find answers elsewhere before I come here bugging you guys! I have read the manual, I google stuff, and have even lurked on a few other forums for some answers (although some of those other forum peeps are not as nice as YOU guys! Really!) So I'm trying not to be a pest.

    But I am convinced that the phone, as much as I ADORE IT (which I really, truly do!) is quirky. Plain and simple! And I'm OK with that (I guess!) as long as it's "harmless". Do you guys think it is?

    So, anyway, I'm eager to try saving pics again, to see what happens... just haven't had a chance to play with it (this darn day job and all that!) I'll keep you guys posted.

    And again -- THANK YOU for your patience and help!

    Lynn
