How do you limit the size of emails
sent with large attachments (> 1MB)?
I would also like to automatically notify the sender that I do not accept email with attachments greater than 1MB.

Thanks

I don't know of any ISPs that will allow the receipt of +1GB attachments. (Where I work it is limited to 5MB.)  Anyway, OE5 can be configured to break apart messages greater that a specific size by goint to Tools > Accounts > <Mail Account Properties> > Advanced tab.

You can go so far as to create a rule in OE5 not to download messages larger than a specific size (or w/ attachment) so you can telnet or use a 3rd party application like Magic Mail Monitor (http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Vista/2576/magic.html) to determine before downloading.

Good luck...
