I personally can't see it would make any difference in terms of dial up.....and at a total size of
200kb it would be pretty hard to tell since it really doesn't take that long (I usually have a 44 kb to
50kb per second speed though - I guess that's 4 seconds per email download time).
I know of a lily list for which file size was an ongoing problem, the solution was to create
another list for larger size photos.   They allow posting up to 1,000kb or yahoo's limit
which I really don't think is necessary, most of them come through around 500kb....I of
course had to join cause I love large photos.

So what would be the difference between 4 - 50kb photos and 2 - 100kb photos?
(And if you say 2 photos, it ain't funny!!)

That is a very good idea, John.  Many times people have related pictures that really should be shown together.  200 KB would allow four 50 KB pictures.  I don't think anyone needs more than that at a time.

Good question. Analytically, it should not make much difference in
download time whether you sent them all in one message or in separate

Following that logic, one could say well I could put 10 or 20 pictures
in the same message. However, some people have problems downloading
large messages because their service times out (the system is looking
for a different kind of activity).

So I guess I should set a secondary limit at 200KB max per message.
Seems like a reasonable number. I am open to suggestions on this.
