Where is imagedata? <img src="cid:image001.gif@01BF4C68.ABA6D350"

P: n/a
Where does the imagedata get stored in following case?

<img src="cid:im**********@01BF4C68.ABA6D350"

When I tried to save the gif file by right clicking the picture I got
it as .bmp.

What does the number 01BF4C68.ABA6D350 indicate?
How can I save the gif file on my harddisk?

Maybe it is a bitmap image with an odd filename. Maybe your email client
converts images to bitmaps when you try to save them.

David,

Thanks for reply.

It is an animated image, which has to be a "gif" file.
I think the image data is stored in the message file in encoded format.

Can someone tell me the way to save this image in gif format, please?

Thanks in advance in appriciation of your efforts.

We can't - it's entirely dependent on your email client, and we've no
idea what you're using.

The program "uudecode" might work.

Depends on your email client. (Or you could use one of the many find MIME
parsing modules over at http://search.cpan.org/ )

Unfortunately, these questions were never answered correctly. Sorry guys, but you don't know what you're talking about.

The SRC string was generated by MS Word. I may have received the same email, or a similar one. (With a cartoon guy bashing on the keyboard until he's nothing but a bloody stump? Freaking hillarious!)

Anyway, you can't copy the image as a .gif because it becomes a .bmp file, and no decoding programs I have tried are successfully able to retrieve the image. However, you can retrieve it using MS Word. Here's how:

1) Using Outlook, make sure MS Word is your default mail editor.
(Tools - Options - Mail Format - checkbox under Message Format section)
2) Reply to the email to get it opened in MS Word.
(You must reply or forward to get the embedded image properly selectable)
3) Click on the image once to select it. (The image will no longer appear animated, but that's ok.)
4) Drag and drop the image on the desktop, or right-drag and drop on the desktop and choose Create Active Desktop Images Here. (should be the default choice)
5) You will be told a .gif image will need to be created in order to place the active desktop image. Agree and place the image on the desktop, or wherever you want it.
6) You can now rename the image and it will be a proper .gif.
