Outlook 2003 Save HTML Limitation

If want to save an e-mail message in HTML format in Microsoft Outlook 2003, you may find that Outlook, unlike MSIE or Firefox browsers, only saves the text in the message but not any of the embedded images or attachments. Worse, Outlook doesn't warn you that it is not saving the entire message.

Another annoyance is that if you try to save an image in the message using the context menu item Save Picture As, then you can only save using BMP format.
