Hmmm, may I?

You see, when you're running a listserv, and someone mails over a megabyte
of mail to the couple of hundred subscribers, the server tends to get a
bit squishy.

If the server doesn't melt, some of us have this program called Eudora,
which we use to view our mail over a 14.4 modem, and Eudora doesn't warn
you when you have a 1 MB file in your box. And it really hates
it when you try to stop a file download. As a matter of fact, Eudora has
been known to lose the users entire mailbox after crashing the system
into a cold boot sequence. It gets messy.

Perhaps you should have considered mailing the file directly to the
recipient. Most of us on the list HAVE Cu-SeeMe.

There, was that enough Pete? Glad to be of service.
