How do I attach a photo to my e-mail?


I read your column in today's Republic on sending photos

via e-mail. I have a problem doing this. I have an iMac, and my provider is Goodnet. Every time I try to send a picture, the recipient gets text. I have used all the right settings: JPEG, reduced size, etc. When I called Goodnet, they told me that I need to upgrade my Outlook Express. This seems a little peculiar in as much as I should already have a current version of Outlook Express. Have you any suggestions? I find this to be very frustrating. I have no problem receiving pictures.
