JPEG can not hold an alpha channel. You need to render out in a file type that supports it such as tif, tga or iff in order to see it. The alpha channel is just that, a channel. It will not spit out as a seperate file but rather a channel within the file. Most of these file types store info in the R, G, B, A and Z channels within the file itself.
