Hello,
How does Windows know, for example; this is the Picture Source, rt. clicking
on properties....
***mhtml:mid://00000113/!cid:000801c51472$7e436360$ff8efea9@MYISP.COM***.
???

What does the @MYISP.COM refer to... since the graphic was inserted by
browsing to a folder on my puter ???

If I reinstall Windows fresh, Windows IS still capable of showing me the
pixes... so Windows isn't using the TIF fldr!! Therefore, it must be a .dat
file, where are these large .dat files, they can't be in Windows because I
would loose the .dat files. when Windows is re-installed, and the fldrs
themselves only have thumbnails.db and desktop. ini, hidden fldrs, and **no
..dat** file, very curious ???

Thank you,
Star

That monstrosity you post which ends in ".com" can do anything it wants
to, because it is an executable, just like ".exe". It does what the
programmer wrote it to do. It could be getting the pictures from
anywhere (not just TIFs as you know) & from any file type (not just a
..dat as you suspect).

A .com is an execuable, just like .exe, would never have imagined. Are you
sure ?

It is a monstrosity, why am I not seeing a path that makes sense, I browsed,
followed a path and inserted the graphic ??? I am a snoopy user as you know
& I was trying hard to figure it out.

Are you

Yes. Command.com is an example of an executable that is a ".com".
However, looking at...

***mhtml:mid://00000113/!cid:000801c51472$7e436360$ff8efea9@MYISP.COM***

....again, it could be that one is some kind of URL, like ".net" would

Uh-oh, I see what you are looking at from your response to Edwards...

The source code in OE shows example....
<IMG id=_x0000_i1030 height=202
src="cid:004e01c2d9d8$0abcbda0$bcb3fea9@j9f0v2"
width=252>

....I don't really know where that is. TIFs were a good guess, but you
say there are none.

The information is contained within the TIFF file and is created by whatever
process created the file originally.

That's what I suspected that the Windows was following the source code to
the tif fldr.

I have these files in fldrs. and if I copy to a floppy or Iomega disk, they
are read by any puter, but how, I'm not sure??? The program assoc. is OE &
these are saved emls.

The source code in OE doesn't shows the path either.... the path I browse to
is a lrg. media catalog of graphics on my D partition.

The source code in OE shows example....
<IMG id=_x0000_i1030 height=202
src="cid:004e01c2d9d8$0abcbda0$bcb3fea9@j9f0v2"
width=252>

I **can clearly see how .html is pulled together**, a html fldr., and inside
a htm file and all the graphics together w/sound files etc...

This ability of OE to hold the info and perfectly display these files to me
is beyond amazing. I am not connected to the Internet, the total source is
my computer.

PCR Pro,

I save email & news outside of OE, ok, and I save w/.eml ext.
I can understand html, I create them, I make a fldr., put the graphics in
the fldr. and make the htm page.
If... I open the htm, I can rt. click the picture and see the properties....
Example:
file:///D:/My%20Documents/Word%20Html's/Heart/file:///D:/My%20Documents/Word%20Html's/Heart/loverbg.gif

The path is D:\My Documents\Word Html's\Heart Fldr. & the picture file
is......loverbg.gif
Under View source code, this is the entry, html code.... <IMG
SRC="loverbg.gif" WIDTH=275 HEIGHT=238>

Now... if I go to a eml fldr. & open a eml... OE opens of course...
Of course.... I have to put in edit mode, forward message...
I can now rt. click on a pix and see the properties....
Example:
mhtml:mid://00000006/!cid:007101c521b3$c661fbe0$ff8efea9@MYISP.COM
mhtml:mid... this identifies OE
00000006... this have no idea
!cid:007101c521b3$c661fbe0$ff8efea9@MYISP.COM... this the tif, what else
could it be leading to

OK, now, if I go to view/and source code in OE this is the entry for the
same image that I pasted picture properties above
for, *** the source code entry IS .....*** <IMG id=MA1.1086019036
style="WIDTH: 279px; HEIGHT: 302px" height=302 alt="" hspace=0
src="mhtml:mid://00000006/!cid:007101c521b3$c661fbe0$ff8efea9@MYISP.COM"
width=321 border=0 DATASIZE="15328">

The picture is on my puter, I know exactly where it is.... the eml has been
on my puter as long as the image... I have re-installed Windows many times,
the source can't be the tif fldr. I always think about this when I open
very old eml's, how can Windows & OE so perfectly pull in these very old
pixes..... ???

Give it some thought PCR Pro.... because the total source is my puter, and
I'm sure there's no .dat file pulling it together ???

At this point, did you go to look in TIF's again? It might be you will
find it now, if the file has been created by what you did to view the

itself. Ultimately, you'll have to click an URL such as Richards has
posted, to know what is going on with that. But I'm not sure he's posted
the right one yet.

My response assumed you were viewing an image file (such as a TIFF file) in
an image viewer (such as Irfanview) that will display the image properties
for you.

From your comment it appears that you are looking at an image on a page
rendered in HTML, such as an e-mail in OE that has been formatted as HTML.

In this case the source refers to a location on your system where the host
for the HTML renderer (OE is the host for IE in this example) has stored the
component so that the renderer can access it and prepare it for display.
This source is an internally generated label. It might or might not
correspond to a file on disk, but if it does then there is no practical way
to translate from the label to a disk file. It is possible that the label
is constructed so that its components have some meaning, but it's more
likely that much of it is arbitrary, or manufactured (at least in part) to
comply with some standard that is not actually relevant to the current
operation.

As an experiment, you could try clearing the TIF folder and then looking at
the message again to check the image source. Does it change?

If you are saving emails with embedded images as *.eml file, then OE is
storing the graphic inside the *.eml file. The email itself is constructed
as a "multi-part message". The cid is the "Content-ID" (part) of the linked
object. Since no external hyperlink is defined as home to the src of the cid,
the "content" will be inside "this" file.

Open the *.eml file in notepad and look to the bottom for something like-

------=_NextPart_000_092D_01C53CDF.C85340C0
Content-Type: image/gif;
name="whatever.gif"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
Content-ID: < 004e01c2d9d8$0abcbda0$bcb3fea9@j9f0v2 >

You should find a very large string of characters below that mess.
That is the graphic.
