Let me guess, he's using AOL or some other major ISP?  Years ago I
encountered the same thing with AOL.

So, there may be little gained by arguing.  Ask him to wrap the images in
ZIP files before he sends them--that may help.

These tips were something I pondered about earlier today (when I was
deciding whether or not a being offended was a good tactic to win an
argument) and has NOTHING to do with this thread.

Being the first to be offended doesn't mean that you are right.

Being offended is a choice, often taken by those who cannot logically state
their case.
