On our home computer we often have the problem of large files blocking our in box.
With our ISP we then go on to their site and check our web mail and look at what the emails are. 
If we do not want to down load an email for any reason we delete it from the web mail.
We often use this technique if we have a rush of shoe, watch and other for sale items come in.

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.
