I gave up on hosting my own email years ago when I was the recipient of
tens of thousands of spam messages per day, both to this and my business
email address.  I now simply use gmail to handle email - seems like the G
beast has seen every bit of spam before, so the spam transfer rate is
approximating zero.

All of the old mailing lists I use are on groups.io -   I actually don't
log into their platform, instead they send me updates as messages.  These
often contain attachments, which don't bother me, as its using google mail
storage to store, and unless its interesting, I don't bother copying it
into my world.  That way, complete disk images can be sent and I don't mind.

Using a glass screen VDU with a mouse, means that the sparse, and expensive
to obtain paper for the TTY is not adversely used when somebody top or
bottom or sideways posts.   And I can even catch up on email while I am
using my phone in the bus.

If we do implement attachments that are limited to one SSDD 8" disk, can
there please be some technological way of chaining disk 'parts' to allow
larger attachments to be transmitted?

Kindest regards,

Doug Jackson

Just like an old fashioned letter, this email and any files transmitted
with it should probably be treated as confidential and intended solely for
your own use.

Please note that any interesting spelling is usually my own and may have
been caused by fat thumbs on a tiny tiny keyboard - for this I apologise in
advance - It's ok bec**** we don* nee* accu**** tex* to unde****** actu**

Should any part of this message prove to be useful in the event of the
imminent Zombie Apocalypse then the sender bears no personal, legal, or
moral responsibility for any outcome resulting from its usage unless the
result of said usage is the unlikely defeat of the Zombie Hordes in which
case the sender takes full credit without any theoretical or actual legal
liability. :-)

Be nice to your parents.

radio station, go fishing or sailing - just do something that makes you
