Hi Jerry -

I received the "ATTACHED" small photo in your email quoted below. I did
not see/receive an embedded photo.

I have not received the high-quality photo at all. I do not believe it is
GMail that is filtering out the photo on MY end, as I often email myself
fairly large photos, and as I understand it, GMail's attachment size limit
is 25MB.

I hope that helps, but I suspect it may actually make things more
confusing... :-\
