The minority-dialup member sez -
<~ 200K - no sweat.

More than that: doesn't matter if it's "attached" (vs displayed).  Were 
it >1 MB and I really wanted to Get Mail now? 
I'd have to abort; use WebMail to delete the sucker, unread [obv same 
problem if 'viewed' at all - even remotely.]

Possible both-ways solution, where link-to-website seems awful:
Post message.  Describe what's to be in next message whose title says, 
'Attachment-only for post '___'
Crude? guess it depends on how many of these are apt to erupt in a 
month.. flexibility is All.


Ashton, looking to use my bitchin Parker pen with Gold nib and decent 
blue ink; proseless death via .jpgs !

ummm :-
