Wasn't something said about 'trimming'?  If people won't do it on their
own, then limiting their message size, and truncating off the end/excess
will force them to learn.

When they don't see their message, they'll know they didn't get through
(and then probably start whining "What's wrong with MailMan at Satlug?"

I said this in 1989 and I can't beleive in 2010, I'm still saying the
same thing;

"People, at -LEAST- have the common sense to pay attention to something
as it passes right before your eyes!"

This message has been scanned for viruses and
dangerous content by MailScanner, and is
believed to be clean.
