How can I e-mail images to PC users reliably?

I use a Mac to create images and manipulate photos. I often have to send small (eg. 50K jpeg) image files to PC users by e-mail. They VERY often have problems reading my images, even tho I carefully give them PC-style names like IMAGE.JPG. I've had similar problems with JPEGS and PDF files.

Other Mac users can almost always read my files.

What's going on??

in your email program, change the attachment encoding method to UUencode.  you probably have it set to BinHex or AppleDouble.  Also, some email applications have an option to "alwyas include macintosh information".  make sure this is turned off.  if your email program doesn't have the ability to change these options, try something like eudora.  eudora light is available for free from www.eudora.com.  that should solve the problem, but again, make sure you do use proper names so the pc's can handle it.  you should try making the name all lowercase as well.  hope that does it.
