Re: [Evolution] attachments issue

I seem to remember a recent thread on just this topic. To recap what I
said then: your mail system may be happy with large attachments, but you
can't assume that every relay in the path to any random destination is
equally happy.

Why should they care ? Your mail doesn't come there at a stretch anyway.
Or does packet switching need a lull from time to time ;-)

No, it's because email is a "store and forward" protocol.  So every mail relay in the path from your machine 
to the destination mail box must be able to handle the whole of the message.  My mail machines are set to 
reject messages over 10Mb - I know some relays that are set to 2Mb.
