Moving Mail Attachments

You can drag and drop attachments to the File Manager, or any other application that accepts files of the attachment's file type. See "Using Drag and Drop with Mail Tool" for more information.

Alternatively, you can use the Attachment pane's controls to copy an attachment to a directory:

  1. In the Attachments pane, click SELECT on the attachment to be copied.

    The file is highlighted.

  2. In the control area of the Attachments pane, choose Save As from the File menu.

    You see the Mail Tool: Save Attachment As popup window, as shown in Figure 4-24.

    1. Select the directory and filename to be moved.

      Alternatively, you can type the directory name in the Directory text field.

    2. Click SELECT on the Save button.

      A copy of the file is stored in the specified directory, with the file name derived from the name of the attachment.
