TechRepublic Questions of the Week - April 6, 2009

The questions highlighted in this Questions of the Week post address issues with Outlook 2007, Flash, network security, editors needing a vacation, and more.

With the help from the TechRepublic community, we've compiled a list of questions from last week that had great answers and/or large appeal. If you want to submit your favorite Question of the Week, using those guidelines as criteria, please send them to trol@techrepublic.com.

This first question was sent to me directly from TR member oeflynn. Please post your answer in the discussion thread.

We have just been migrated from Outlook 2003 to Outlook 2007. Previously in Outlook 2003, when I received an e-mail containing an image (the daily Dilbert cartoon by e-mail is a good example), I could right-click on the image, and do a ‘Save As.' Now, in Outlook 2007, when I right click, all I get is a ‘Copy' option. Does anyone have a good solution to provide the same functionality as in Outlook 2003?

(I did do a search in Google.  I came across some VB script, but it works only with attachments, not embedded images. There are numerous commercial packages, purporting to work with everything from Outlook 2001 to Vista - so, I have taken them with a pinch of salt!)

Copying and pasting into a graphics package is a pain, and you lose the file naming! I really miss the ability to save my images, so any assistance would be appreciated. Here's my PC configuration:

- Windows XP Professional, with SP2

- Outlook 2007 with SP1

- Connecting to Exchange Server

Here are other highlighted questions from last week:

Help I can't do my homework

Just plain silly:
