    Re: Attachments again

    This is mostly for Frank, but may interest others.
    Thanks for your prompt and full response. My first request is that you do
    NOT distribute the posting with 3.1 MB of attachments that I sent, twice,
    yesterday. A recent posting from Paul Jackson has made some of it
    irrelevant, and anyway, I can reduce the attachment without too much
    hassle. I will send an amended version, today.
    I fully agree there has to be a limit on the size of attachments, and 3
    megabytes seems a very reasonable setting.
    You wrote- "You should not worry about a missing message unless at least
    six hours have elapsed and probably twelve." That's what I did; resent
    after 6, inquired after 12. If such messages are put into a bin, waiting to
    be dealt with "by hand", then it's unreasonable to expect anything more
    prompt, and no doubt sometimes the delay may be much longer. In which case,
    whenever such a message is automatically diverted into that bin, is there
    any way for an automatic acknowledgment to go back to the sender? To say
    something like "Yes, we've received your message, it will be considered and
    may be rejected, but do not resend it" Because resending is in nobody's
    interest, if it's been received..
