My neighbour has just asked me if he's in trouble with receiving emails. He has just said that he has successfully downloaded 2 of 3 - the third was still downloading and, he says, the byte count has reached over 3 mb. Is there a limit on the size of email messages? I told him that, as he has already received 2 messages then his equipment must be in order, but, as he is a businessman he is concerned that he may lose an order.
PS If he gets MailWasher he will be able to look at mail without downloading. He will not be able to download any more mail now until he competes the download of that mail that's taking some time unless he use's mailwasher to delete it at isp
3 mins for a reply - wow, that's a record (for me!)
What I actually said to him Woodchip was - if the byte count received is still going up (also the bytes sent)then it must be downloading an enormous message - or it has a very large uncomopressed picture.
However, Woodchip - as he rings me only when he has trouble I'm not expecting another ring to tell me what has happened. I thought that I had heard, somewhere, that there was a limit to the size of emails so my curiosity was aroused.
