Scanning and e-mailing images

I have just scanned a 4" X 6" photo and saved it as a jpg.  When I print this photo, it comes out the original size of the photo but when I e-mail this photo, it is received greatly enlarged.  I want the image received via e-mail to be true to the actual size of the photo.  Also, when I view this photo in Adobe PhotoShop, if I click on image information, it reports the true dimensions of the file but when I choose "actual size" from the view menu, it appears much larger.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Don

In Photoshop, check the DPI of the image. My guess is it is quite high if you've just scanned it. Change the DPI to 72dots per INCH and make sure that constrain proportions is on.

When scanning in future, scan at 75/72 dpi. I know it decreases the quality of the scan but monitors can only display 72dpi anyway!!!
