Not true either. Remember, all the mail has to be distributed over the  
internet anyway to the various mail servers, so it takes up bandwidth and disk  
space. Also, I get my mail over UUCP, so all mail is downloaded, whether I  
want it or not.

We're talking about black & white GIF's of schematics, so 20 KB should be  
more than enough. Above that, I'd prefer that people put it on a web/ftp site.
