Cannot save attachments in Hotmail

    I'm running IE 5.5 with Win98SE, and have never been able to save
    attachments from Hotmail emails. I right click, click on Save Target
    As, and only get a very short htm file that says "getmsg", referring
    to the email command or address for the email itself, never the
    attachment, which could be a doc, xls, jpg, etc. Even if I save this,
    it's only a short htm file, not the attachment.

    As a workaround, I've been forwarding the emails to another Web-based
    email account, where I can right click and use Save Target As to save
    the file to disk with no problem. Is this a Hotmail-only glitch?
    Because I don't have this problem with any of my other email accounts.
    Is there maybe a Registry setting I could make to enable me to save
    Hotmail attachments? I've tried several times emailing Hotmail
    support with no response. Any ideas or comments would be welcome.
    Thank you.
