Outlook 2010 seems to be inconsistent with how it attaches files to emails. For example, create a new email and drag multiple files into it. They will show up in a field labeled Attached beneath the Subject field. However, when attaching files to a reply to another email, Outlook behaves in one or two ways:
- It stores the attachments in the Attached field beneath the subject
- It imbeds them into the body of the email
While this may seem to come down to a mere visual annoyance at first, it actually affects how you save attachments. If they're in the header of the email, you can right-click the header and Save All Attachments. If they're imbedded in the body, though, you have to save each attachment individually. This is very tedious when you regularly receive emails with up to 10 attachments.
Is there a way to save all attachments at once when they're imbedded in the email?
