    36k

    Seems a little small really, I thought the limit from the 'old-days' was 64k anyways.... *shrug* I
    need a new news server anyway, the one that Dart Internet supplies missplaces about 5-10% of posts.
    The first time I complained, they asked me what the IP address of the _news_group_ was that I was
    connecting to :)

    Certainly doesn't inspire confidence.

    It doesn't sound right. There are more sophisticated ways of detecting whether a post has an
    attachment or is HTML than merely its size.

    It's times like that you don't know whether to laugh or cry.

    Drs,

    FYI, I first used email in 1993, stopped utilising newgroups back in 1996. Thought the technology back then was bloody clumsy & duly waited for it to catch up with user demand.

    Gawd damn retrogrouchs...:D
