This may be a stupid question, but is your default email set as html? Mine is; all I have to do is open the email (or even through the preview pane), put my cursor over the image, right click and select "save as". It usually detects that it is an image and sets the default to jpeg I think and saves it. I would check that your default email is set to html. Does the email come as an attachment or is it embedded? That might make a difference. Take a look at those things and repost.

My default email is not set to html. I could only find a setting for default for composing email - that is not set to html. I couldn't find a default setting for receiving mail (and that wouldn't make much sense to me, either :-) Setting the default for composing to html didn't make a difference.

That is what I do exactly, only the "save as"-option doesn't detect anything and just saves the email message.

In the email source it comes as "<img src="http://www.comics.com/blablabla">" You call that embedded? The image is not in an attachment in the message, it is retrieved from the internet when viewing the email.
Thanks for all your help so far. Some more info: I use evolution 2.8.1 on Arch Linux. It's an official Arch-package I installed.
It sounds like you're not (alt) clicking on the image itself, but on the msg. it's embedded in. I find that hard to believe, so I suspect that Evolution is not allowing to click the image, just the msg.
