Thank you for posting.

The choice of web browser could be an issue. I had not taken the choice of browser into consideration until you mentioned it.

I am using Microsoft Edge as I am running Windows 10S.

On the Lenovo machine I was habitually using Google Chrome.

As an update I have now got the .rtf file on my computer.

I have no idea how. The webmail and browser together just kept opening it as an image and if I tried to save then the system kept offering me a .html file.

But I found the .rtf filet in the downloads folder of the computer.

Google Chrome used to offer a named file as a save option.

So perhaps a bit wild. Though maybe not if by being asked for a download it had then just done it to the downloads folder using the file name of the attached file.



Until December 2022, using a Lenovo laptop running Windows 10 in England. From January 2023, using an HP laptop running Windows 11 in England.
