Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.  This is a 20 Kb .jpg picture.  I
guess it depends how much detail you need - whether for ID purposes or to
illustrate an item of interest - as to whether such a photo serves the

Greetings. over the last 24 hours or so we have had seven emails posted 
to the list that are sized two, three, four or more times larger than 
the list's maximum which is 100 kb including attachments.

The reason for the 100 kb limit is to show consideration to people with 
low bandwidth internet access.

COG is under pressure to prohibit the posting of photos to the list, as 
this is the usual cause of emails being oversize. There will be no need 
for such a ban if people simply reduce their image sizes. An image 
sized  20 kb still displays perfectly well on computer screens.

Please be considerate of others and stick to this simple condition of 
being a list subscriber.

Thanks - David
