    I don't use Microsoft Outlook Express. I did, however,
    make it the default email on my Mother's computer
    since I felt it would be the easiest for her to use.

    Friends email her photos all the time. She wanted
    to organize them in a software photo album. I gave
    her Adobe Photo Album to organize her photos.

    The problem?

    I and the software can't find these photos.

    You can view the photos through Microsoft Outlook.
    They are there....somewhere.

    But where?! Where is the default folder for photos
    downloaded through Outlook Express?

    I tried everything. I clicked on the photo properties
    and got very little information. I looked in her
    MY PHOTOS folder and found nothing. I even had
    Adobe Photo Album do a system search and it
    came up blank......

    ...yet the photos do exist. I can see them through
    Adobe Photo Album.

    I suppose the temporary solution would be to try
    to save/copy them to a new folder.

    I'd just like to know the SOURCE folder first.

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    They are held in a temporary folder until you click on the attachment paperclip and save them to a folder. Photos are previewed in outlook express, but you actually have to save them outside of the email itself.

    Thanks for the responses guys.

    That's the oddest thing I have ever seen.
    Every other email program I have used has a
    specific download folder to immediately retrieve
    any downloaded material.
