A friend received a jpg attachment to her Yahoo account, and forwarded it to me.

I received the E-mail, which had the original forwarded E-mail as an attachment.
I could click on the attachment to view the E-mail.  That E-mail has an attached

I can click on the jpg and view it in Mozilla.  But if I use "Save As", I get an
Alert that says "Unable to save attachent. Please check your file name and try
again later."

The folder where I intended to save the file has no file by the same name.  And
I have write perms to that folder.  Changing the name or folder does nothing. (I
tried saving to C:\TEMP but it didn't like that either.)

When I view it in Mozilla, I can use the File | Save to save it, though.

Robert Rothenberg, please save the email (or another showing the same problem -- 
a smaller file is preferred!) as a .EML file and attach it to this bug, using 
the Create a New Attachment link above.

Sample E-mail duplicating this bug

The original message had a not-so-appropriate image.  And there's the issue of
including my friends' friends' E-mails in a public database.

However, I was able to replicate the bug:
1. I forwarded the Buzilla notification to a Yahoo account
2. I attached a small PNG image to that forward before sending it
3. In Yahoo web mail I forwarded the message back as an attachment

OK.  What I am seeing with that posted email is that if I open the attached 
email into its own standalone window, then try Save As from the attachment 
panel, I cannot save it, as described by reporter.  This is true with 1.6 Final, 
1.7a-0301, under Windows 2000.

This looks to be yet another symptom of bug 204350.

As a tenuous workaround: the image attachment is also seen in the attachment 
panel of the message *containing* the forwarded message (which is itself bug 
35587; see also bug 203570).  Selecting the image from there, it can be saved.
