    A coworker in the office often sends me images for ads and jpgs with apple mail that come from her come through much smaller than they were sent to her, and they come in the body of the email instead of as an attachment. I've watched her do it and she is attaching correctly. PDFs come through just fine. Even when she just forwards an email with a jpg, it still comes through small and in the body of the email. Is there something in the preferences that needs to be changed? Any idea what might be happening. I use gmail myself so I'm not sure what to tinker with.

    She works from an iMac that was purchased new last December (08) so that would put her in Leopard I believe (I don't have access to the computer right now to give more info).

    This is something Mac Mail does automatically with large images. She can override it by attaching the image, then changing the "image size" menu in the bottom-right corner of her email window before she sends the email. Choose "actual size" to keep the original size of the image. She'll need to do this even when she forwards images. I think that Mac Mail might start remembering her preference after a few times, but I'm not sure.

    If it's bothering you that the images appear in-line within the email, have her right-click (or control-click) on the image within her email and choose "view as icon."

    After doing both of these things she can hit "send" and everything should be good.
