    attached to their e-mails

    Hello, teachers.

    Would you take a look at the following?

    1. Some of my relatives often send me several pictures of their towns attached to their e-mails.

    I think the phrase "attached to their e-mails" can be interpreted in two ways:

    a) ... send me several pictures of their towns which are attached to their e-mails.
    or
    b) ... send me several pictures of their towns by attaching the pictures to their e-mails.

    In the case of #1, which is correct, a) or b)?

    Or, are both possible?

    If I put a comma in front of "attached," then will the meaning be fixed?
    ... send me several pictures of their towns, attached to their e-mails.

    Thank you very much in advance for your help on this.

    yam.

    Re: attached to their e-mails

    "A" would be the normal intended meaning. A comma doesn't change anything, but I would use one.
