I used Evolution for years and attached a lot of .jpg images to emails
and had them sent to me. Some, I used in a Web Site, where I use M$
FrontPage, without any problem. As others have replied, I don't think
this is a problem with Evolution. Possibly something is awry with his
box, or, the SW he is using?

I have seen, recently, if I email an image to or from gmail, to
another email acount, there was one occasion where I could not open
the file normally. Don't recall the exact details.

You might try emailing it to him at his alternate email address.
