I email a lot of jpegs via "Mail" and find that although I attach them correctly the recipient often only receives a picture embedded in the email and not accessible as an attached file. Is there anything I can do about this? I am using Maverick on an IMac

How mail is received is up to the receiver. You cannot control it. A picture embedded can usually be saved by right clicking and choosing to save the image. I've been sending pictures to my Windows-using friends with no problems.

I'm with Jake on this one.

On the rare occasions my recipient has had a problem, I've put the JPEG images into a Folder on my desktop. Then, from within the email message, clicked on Attach and selected the folder. The recipient usually finds the Folder as an attachment which he/she can deal with more easily.
