|It is not always the best idea to click to open attachments. Better to save attachments into a folder. That way you can virus check them first if you have the right click option. |
All the jpg's will then be extracted into the folder rather than into email.
A similar argument applies to downloads in IE. Going for "Run" is not always the best or most sensible option. Installing stuff while your browser is running can cause issues. Saving them to a folder gives you much better control.
I agree with the sentiments that there is no space reduction by sending jpg's in a zip but that might have been to avoid the inconvenience of a stack of jpg files appearing in email, ie. so that you could save the zip and open it elsewhere (like I said earlier).
Modern thinking seems to be that all downloads and attachments should be Run or Opened, either that or be placed all over the desktop. Saving to pre-made empty folders is often the better choice.
Please come back and let us know how you got on.
