    When using Eudora I knew where to find images that were embedded in e-mails
    ...C/Programme Files/Qualcomm/Eudora/Embedded but I cannot find a similar
    location in Thunderbird . I know how to tell it to save attached images but not
    any way to save embedded ones other than doing each one manually .Do they get
    kept somewhere or is there a way of telling Thunderbird what to do with them ?

    In Eudora the images *were* embedded in the email itself while the email
    was downloading, but Eudora removes the image's file data from the message
    and saves it to a file.

    In Thunderbird, the image file data is still embedded in the message,
    the same place where it was when where it was while the email was

    Still embedded in the message.

    In Thunderbird, use "View -> Message Source" and you will see the
    MIME-encoded or UU-encoded image file data after the text.

    There are a number of Thunderbird extensions for dealing with
    attachments. I can't say for certain, but I'd imagine that there is
    very possibly one or more that will allow you to select a block of email
    messages and save all the attachments. I used one in the past, but it
    is no longer supported, and TB now includes the functionality that I
    needed it for, so I've dropped the extension. Perhaps someone here who
    has used one can offer a recommendation.

    Thx Andy .I can get T/Bird to save images "attached" to messages but not the
    embedded ones and that's the problem . It means I have to save each image
    individually and that's a pain .

    This is just a guess, but if you set T'bird to display email as plain
    text, rather than HTML, ISTR that any embedded images are treated as
    attachments. Might be worth a try.
