Embedded Animations in E-Mail

I've received e-mails from various e-mail clients (Yahoo, Hotail, G-Mail, Incredimail, etc.) Occasionally one of these contains an animation embedded in the text. I've wanted to save some of these but for some reason they would not save. On investigation I found that the sender had copied in a .gif file. They will not save as a .gif but only as a single image .bmp.

Other times, from the same individuals, I've received .jpg, .tif, etc., and have no problems saving them to my hard drive.

I've cleared my temporary files, cleared my cache, made sure my internet options (in Advanced) included downloading encrypted images, and checked my registry and found that .gif is an expected image.

I've tried to look to the header to see if I can identify the image type but to no avail -- I either don't now what I'm looking for or it doesn't say. When I right click on the image and select properties, the image is identified only as a .html.

I own an HP with a 3400 AMD Athlon chip, 1 GB RAM, and a 250 GB SATA HDD. I'm running Windows HP Media Edition and IE7.

Does anyone have a clue as to the next thing I should look to?

    Interesting comment; it's been recommended by others. Apparently Incredimail is pretty incredible. However, I was hoping for a fix that I could do without having to add more software. Nevertheless, thanks for your time and interest. I'll keep Incredimail in mind.

I can't send mails but can receive

At issue may be the sending methodology, If you are using the ONLINE client, by going to Yahoo, the issue will be with Yahoo, and they would have to solve it.
IF, however, you are using a local client, like Outlook, Windows live mail, Endura, Incredimail, or similar, check with your ISP about what OUTGOING mail server (SMTP) to use. Spam restrictions forced this situation.

I am being told that my mailbox is 100% full

You need to delete items from your inbox to free up space, this is not realted to a router issue. Be sure that file folders of saved e-mail are OUTSIDE your inbox, if you are using a local client (Outlook, Incredimail, etc.) If you are using online mail client, you have to delete excess mail, look for mail with large attachements, like pictures, etc.
