Hi Cathy,
Unfortunately, it really does become a problem for me.  I access the Internet through a community college.  Not sure if their network restricts the size of attachments, or if my headaches occur during the times their network is extremely busy.  What usually happens is the e-mail download stalls when it attempts to download larger sized e-mails.  Or, when it doesn't just stall, I'm suddenly disconnected from the Internet.  Then I'm forced to access my mail account via the web, which is a pain because it takes so long to do.  Once I delete the problem e-mails, my mail program can then download the rest of my e-mail.  Fortunately, I haven't seen any e-mail larger than 100k on these lists that didn't include photos.  Lastly, I'm sure it doesn't help that I  have an older computer, too.
Oh well.  If the e-mail downloads become more of a problem for me, I'll just unsubscribe.

The recommended size on the list introduction is 50k. My suggestion is
to increase this to 100k.
This is not an unreasonable size, even for dialup (I administer a bank
of modems next to a CO that never gets better than 14.4k connections, so
I have some experience with this.). Text only emails where folks have
forgotten to turn off html are often as big as 100k without photos...
