BTW, sending 100K attachments to a list I would regard as slightly

100k attachments are nothing for me. I routinely send 1-5 mb attachments
to my home computer. Whether it be code assemblies, large pdf documents,
movies, zipped up proposals, it doesn't matter.

I would never send same to the list and would hope the list server would
bounce anything over - say - 50 k.

Heh - replying to myself...

I just got an email in Outlook (running under Crossover) with over eight
megabytes in attachments.

It wasn't a problem to open in Outlook, but Thunderbird completely
bombed when opening.

I did remove the "reply to list" feature. I've been looking (on google)
for the config area to change to allow for reply to list and to use the
L key to do it.

Any ideas?
