You cannot do that and get the jpg back again. You have to mime encode any file that has record length greater than 78(?) bytes, as I remember.

Otherwise mail transport will either misinterpet things so you cannot view the file or data will be lost.

uuencode my.jpg my.jpg | /usr/bin/mailx -s 'a jpg file'
