If someone sends you a file attachment, you can choose how to handle it. You can save it to your disk or you can open it. To open the attachment, you must have a program that can open and display that particular file type.


Save Attachment

You can also select to save the attachment to disk. If you choose this option, you see the Save Attachment As dialog box. Select a folder for the file, type a new name or accept the current file name, and then click Save.
