    Marcel,
    
    I have sent a few attachments and have not received any complaints.
    Usually they have been jpgs set to render within the text, rather than
    pdf or Microsoft Word docs that have to be opened separately.  They key
    to the lack of complaints regarding my attachments (aside from nobody
    being interested to read them in the first place!) may be that they
    were small, on the order of 10-20 kilobytes, and thus not an undue
    strain on dialup connections or older computers.
    
    Fred
