Kodak seems to be a very proprietary with their software, and make it almost impossible for to do what you're asking. (That I'm aware of)
I host photo's from my family in a gallery on AOL. Most of my family are Kodak crazy, because we were brought up with it's "Brownie" model.(yeah, I'm showing my age) and because we live all over the continent, e-mail was the only way to gather material for the project.
In the past, they were sending me photos using Kodak software, and I was having the same problem. The only workaround that I could come up with was to have them "Not" use Kodak, but to send as attachments in e-mail. I know that it sounds like a lot of e-mails, given size limitations,
(especially in Windows Mail), but we've done for over 2,500 photo's so far, and it has worked like a charm.
Your problem is compounded by the "size limitations" of e-mail. You can't expect to send or receive 100 photo's, and not have them re-sized in order for them to be sent.
The plus is, you will have larger clearer pictures which will allow for better editing in Photoshop like software. (should you be so inclined)
If there is another answer to your question, believe me, I'll be watching this post to find it.
