If you set your e-mail client to only automatically download messages below a certain size (50Kb, 100Kb, whatever you want), then you will just see the headers for anything larger and if you choose to delete them this will delete them from the server on the next send/receive without downloading them. That’s how my e-mail client (Outlook) works, anyway.

It's been a beautiful Day, but I want to have a grumble so here goes:

I note that David McDonald has made this plea previously but I'd like to reiterate: Please take care to ensure that photos you transmit to the group are within the recommended size (whatever it is) as I have a dial-up connection and am unable to change within the short term. As it is I need to call the service provider about once a week to ask them to remove large transmissions that have jammed up my email, and it's becoming a pain in the neck. So much so that I'm considering leaving the chat line, a move which I would regret.
