Into Lr3 from e-mail
The photo was sent as an attachment. I double clicked on the attachment, and the photo opened full screen in Windows Photo Gallery. Up at the top is a limited menu. I clicked on file-make a copy, and went to the top bar, clear back to the LH side and started a new path ignoring the path that had already been selected. I was able to put it on an external hard drive, and pick it right up with LR3's import process.
I've not done it this way before, but you can bet that I am sure going to write it down!
