What Happened to My Picture's DPI/PPI?


My mother got a picture scanned onto a CD at Staples and was told it was scanned at 300 dpi. But when she emailed it to me, it was only 72 dpi. Did the saleslady lie or did emailing cause the picture to lose resolution? Or what happened? This reminds me of the world famous mystery of the missing pillow. Crime buffs dubbed it The Pillow Case.
