Recently, we had a user call and ask us to remove a large email attachment
from their mailbox.
It was about 55 Megabytes in size. Then, later in the day another user
called with the same request. This time, it was 89.9 Megabytes. We thought
that this was a record!
So we thought it was time to remind you that a 1 Megabyte attachment is
about what the system was designed for, and 2 Mb is big. It would take
about 10-15 minutes to download.
You can do your own calculations on the above files, and those times preclude
technical problems! We have noticed an increasing number of other ISP's
setting limits of 1-2 Mb on their mail accounts. This results in the item
being returned to the sender.
We have no limits.....for the time being. But it will be re-assessed if
these occurrences continue. So tell tell your friends to limit attachments
to around that size.
If they have little concept of files' sizes, show them how to use Windows
Explorer, because a knowledge of file management is essential for doing
anything on a computer, as well as watching the size of attachments.
