    Hello everyone...I use an iMac with Mac Mail 3.6 (OSX 10.5.8)

    For some reason when i now attache a file to my mac emails - jpg, tiff, picture etc - it reduces it to approx 50-k (typically from 5mb)

    I havent changed anything or done anything

    Due to my occupation this is unacceptable - I need to attach files at their original size

    Any thoughts please?

    Down in the bottom right hand corner of the email window once you attach a file there will be a small drop-down menu, which will allow you to choose the quality. I believe you can simply select original or actual, and it will send the files in that native format and size. You also have the option of simply putting the files in a zip archive, which can have other advantages (including space savings, depending on the original files), and will make sure that Mail doesn't try to change them.
