e-mail attachments

Hi, all computer stumble/bumbles:

When I first got on the Internet...in Feb. with an older Mac using 
the basic free Eudora as the e-mail software, I couldn't open 
attachments of any kind or do anything except read/send e-mail.  Then 
I got Eudora 4.3 and suddenly could see photo attachments (jpg but 
not bmp, whatever that is).  But when I was installing the new 
Eudora, I discovered on my hard drive an attachments folder for the 
old Eudora.  Lo and behold!! there were all the photos I had been 
getting all spring and summer!!  As I deleted all that e-mail the 
attachments were moved to this folder but NOT DELETED.  So I moved 
most of them to trash and saved a few.  The same thing is happening 
for new Eudora.  Although I see the new photo attachments as they 
arrive, they go to  new Eudoras attachment file on the hard drive. 
And if I want to look at a picture again it comes up on a Desktop 
Picture place that also has desktop patterns (if you want to change 
the monitor background.  This seems to be the only place I can open 
photos.  Shouldn't I be able to have a folder...say 'hosta pictures' 
where I could save them as I receive them, that would be easier to 
get at than all this various file opening I have to do now?  Hard 
drive...systems folder..Eudora folder..attachments folder...desktop 
pictures...and finallly...'Moonlight Sonata'.  And I haven't been 
able to combine my old Eudora attachments folder with new Eudora.

And there are people who say computers are easy!  I spend more time 
struggling with this thing than I do learning interesting info. about 
hostas, daylilies, etc.    A computer stumble/bumple, Linda K.
