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

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
'package' (like rpm/deb) for your attachments. When that 'package'
your system, the attachments are 'unpacked' and linked to the right

That sounds a nightmare to implement.
