Ahh, but now you assume that this will cause problems for the recipient.
And you assume the recipient would not have downloaded the file otherwise.
In this time and age where more and more have unmetered broadband and some
even have their computer download email in the background this will not be
a problem at all. Mail from one employee in a company with their own mail
server to an employee in another company with their own mail server the
problem is also non-existant.
Even mail to a modem user will often not be a problem if the modem user
expects the large email.
I am sure that I will not agree with those lucky people that have not had
to support novice users.
