Workaround problem saving photos from Mountain Lion Mail to iPhoto System 10.8
Apple recently published a technical note about a problem saving photos from Mail to iPhoto in Mountain Lion. I actually came across this problem recently, and there was no feedback suggesting that the photos were not saved. Fortunately, I had a Time Machine backup of the email containing photos in question.

The fix is simply this: launch iPhoto, then drag the photos - one by one - from the e-mail onto the iPhoto icon in the Dock.

Workaround problem saving photos from Mountain Lion Mail to iPhoto

I can't confirm this as I have yet to install Mountain Lion but...

If you have an email with several photos the workaround really isn't too good, because each file must be processed separately.

Wouldn't it be easier to save all the attachments (at once) to a temporary folder and then import them from the Finder (again, all at once)?
