No, mainly GIF's. I'm telling you, it's scary. The accounts are overfilled so
quickly and I actually paid over GBP100 just to extend the quota... for SPAM

Not fair... the time wasted cleaning the boxes and losing genuine mail
aside... for the past two years I have been pondering departure from E-mail.
I first read Knuth's page about it 3 years ago... it is rather
inspirational... ever since I can't help but feel that it's the only
solution. Stupidly enough, many business require E-mail for just about
anything, which makes this an impossibility. They ought to realise that
E-mail has become a dead system because of Windows' insecurities. It's a
Catch 22. Do you know that Gates employs a department which filters his
E-mail account?

Best wishes,
