Good point - having investigated the matter further, it appears that
this is another compatibility issue between Microsoft and the rest of
us! My colleague was trying to insert the jpeg image into a MS Publisher
document, having saved the image etc. The image was not 'accepted' by MS
Publisher, whereas when I ran a test to insert the same emailed image
into an OpenOffice document it worked fine! So I was mistaken to say
that the image was corrupted - I'll just have to pass the image to my
colleague by means other than email.
