Greetings. To assist list subscribers, any emails sent to the list address m("","canberrabirds");"> that are over 200 kB in size (including attachments) will now be automatically rejected. The sender will receive an email that reads:
From: m("","MAILER-DAEMON");">
Subject:  failure notice
Hi. This is the qmail-send program at
I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses.
This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.
ezmlm-reject: fatal: Sorry, I don't accept messages larger than 204800 bytes (#5.2.3)
We have instituted this as many list subscribers now access the list via smartphones with very restricted download limits.

If anyone wants advice on how to resize photos so that your emails remain under the 200 kB limit, please contact me. Alternatively, you may find these hints useful:
Please email me directly, rather than to the list as a whole, if you wish to discuss this.

Best wishes - David
