If you are attaching a code file, you probably have some idea of its
size, without checking.  Maybe it involved your time and effort.

But screenshots are easy to create and their huge size may not be
immediately obvious.  A lot of LilyPond people might be thankful for
friendly tips on coping with their oversize cases.

For a start, you may not need a screenshot in the first place. While this is not very common on LilyPond lists (but it is the case in the first thread your mention), it may worth repeating that code or logs should not be posted as screenshots, but simply inline in the email; not only does it trim down the size, but it also allows the reader to copy-paste.

Next, if a screenshot is genuinely useful, then cropping might help, as Frank noted. In most cases, I would expect that you can easily get below the limit even on high-res monitors by not capturing a too large area.

If that doesn't suffice, use a file sharing service like Nextcloud / Dropbox / Google drive.
