Using the Mac mini
I didn't know where to post this, so I'm trying this.
I have a photo attachment that starts out at 350 dpi and 2 or 3 MB but when it is e-mailed it becomes 72 dpi and a few hundred KB n the receiving end.
how can I send attachments without them being altered?

Mail does that to keep the file at a reasonable size. (Some mail service providers will refuse an email above a certain size.) You can compress the file before you attach it. File / Compress. This is a simple way to preserve the original characteristics of the file. The recepient can double click on the attachment to expand it.
By the way, compressing ("zipping") a file preserves the original. You can trash the .zip file afer you have emailed it.

Hello, in Mail, once you attach a pic, look in the bottom right of the compose window for Image Size, Actual size should be a choice.
