Yes! If the list coulld automagically bounce anything over 200k (text
plus photo) that might be helpful. A nice reminder when I, or anyone,
makes an unintended error... But I think most folks are nice when they
"gently" remind us on the list that it was a bit too large...

I am not sure but the newly revised yahoogroups may have this ability,
but perhaps it is just for the group moderator/owner. You would have to
have a yahoo id, which adds another level of complexity for the novice
user... so many computer adept people are here, we sometimes forget ease
of use for all...

Yep, we are in agreement I think!
