    What if you are not able to change the "compose messages in this format" to HTML, it is defaulted to Plain Text

    For attachments sent by no-so-informed colleagues that are embedded in the body of the RTF message, how do I "Save all attachments"? The option doesn't seem to be there when I right-click on any of the attachments.
