I notice a difference according to which originating e-mail program was

For instance, some attachments are listed at the bottom of my screen. I
can get a drop-down box to save it, open it or whatever. Other times I
have to go to the icons on the right. When I click on the attachment it
comes up in a separate view. If it's an image, I see an image. If it's
a file, I see the file name and choices of what to do with it.

It appears to me, it's all in how the originating program handles the
html code.

I also notice some difference with external links to web pages. Some of
them come up just by clicking the link. Others require me to
right-click and pick "open in browser" from the menu.

I'm using the fancy plugin for html.
