Your JPEG image/s are embedded within the ZIP format. Simply open the ZIP link to download/unpack your JPEG images.

Visit the IOS App Store and download iZip (Free). Once downloaded go back to your email and press the (ZIP Format) link, this will open Safari and give you the option to “Open in iZip”. Press this and click “OK” to extract your images. Once extracted you can then select your image/s and press save at the bottom right of your screen.
