Why does Mac Mail embed my photo attachments and can I get it to stop?

I send digital photos from my Exchange IMAP email account using Mac Mail. I do it a lot, and it's a big part of my day to day work.
Many, many, many times I get a response email that says: "Thanks! These are great! Could you send them as an attachment?" Which, of course, is exactly what I did the first time. My assumption is that people could right-click and save the images, and I've put instructions on how to do that in my email signature. But the emails will not cease. Am I wrong about the right-click? (It appears that I am in at least some cases. I just got a rather irritated email from one particular someone who "has an MBA and a Management Info Systems minor" and was clearly put off by my asking about the right-click option when he asked me to send them as attachments. Again.)
Can I get Mail to stop embedding the files, or am I doomed to keep having this email conversation?
