Re: [Evolution] options on download

surely a truncation feature is sufficient??

i run at home on a 28kbps line... 

i use netscape mail at the moment (waiting for another linux client with truncation)

setting it to truncate any message over 10kb i get all my mail quickly down my slow conenction and can choose 
to get the ones with large attachments at my leisure.

10kb is still quite a lot of plain text (which is still what the majority of mail is)

     Actually, it would be better if the servers themselves recognized
a common compression protocol for attachments, and would pack them all
together in one shot, bring down mail, then send you the equivalent of a
'package' (like rpm/deb) for your attachments. When that 'package' reaches
your system, the attachments are 'unpacked' and linked to the right

That sounds a nightmare to implement.
