    Cannot open JPEG file from email on Mac OSX

    I was having Microsoft windows SP2 operating system but few days back due to virus problem I formatted my system. I am having Mac osx operating system installed on my system. The problem I am facing is of JPEG file. When I open my email account any download any JPEG file from my inbox it displays an error message saying that it cannot open the file because it is damaged or corrupted. I cannot understand that whether Mac osx supports JPEG file format. Suggest some opinion to overcome this problem. Also some tips for opening and saving file in Mac osx.

    Sometimes file come from the source which are not don't add extension and when we use preview to open it on Mac osx it will not recognize. When you download any email attachments check whether the file extensions are present on the downloaded files. Suppose you have downloaded image from the email and it doesn't have any extension then in that case it may not open. You can open the image file by adding .jpg or .jpeg to the end of the file name and the preview it. Mac osx will recognize it and file will be opened.
