Hello All,

I can't help feeling a twinge of schadenfreude on hearing this. :-)

Although one can impose such restrictions in Discourse, you don't have to unless you are constrained by organisational problems as here with GNU. As to my suggestion about implementing Discourse, I'd be proposing running it on a dedicated linux server at one of the hosting providers, well clear of GNU infrastructure and limitations. Discourse also handles attachments and images very well, both in the web interface and in the email interface, no problems, and you can set maximum size allowed with ease to whatever your system can handle in terms of disk space.

See my next separate post about current status with this side project re Discourse.

We've been informed that the size of messages to this list containing large attachments is occasionally clogging up the GNU list server's mail delivery queue, causing distribution delays (not just for this list, but for everyone on the hundreds of other lists).

To avoid this, your friendly list admins have configured a max message size of 512KB. If you send a message larger than this, it will come back to you after a while, with a reminder that you should trim its size. If you need to send a file larger than the limit, please use a file sharing service and send the URL only.
