Wayne and Canardians...
I'm not sure that everyone knows what they would include...they are probably thinking advertisements or viruses (I noticed a 'No' in the vote).Would you like to the canard-aviator's list to permit email attachments? <<
Allowing attachments (or using HTML) would permit you to include a picture or drawing of what you are talking about...no more need for those ASCII drawings that we are all so familiar with that turn out differently on everyones machine because of different fonts.
You could include pictures of the planes, avionics, etc, whatever you are talking about, not to mention shared files and databases.
I've been involved in several other email groups that do allow attachments...they make a big difference in clarifying a statement or request.
I voted yes...Wayne should turn on that feature. Once you've had it for awhile, you won't be able to live without it.

who join up beyond the date of the posting: something not available with
I don't want HTML either. I want information, not red green and blue
fonts on chartruse backgrounds. Again a space issue as a 1k text email
is a 5k html email. Also HTML is a way to send some very sneaky
My 2 cents worth.
Velocity XL in the works
One note on attachments, and HTML. I don't mind receiving HTML, but if
it takes too long I just blow off the message. Also, I'd like to see a
size limit on attachments. Like under 100K would be good. Sufficient
for any kind of line drawing you might imagine, several chapters of a
book, or about three nice sized screen viewable graphics. not large
enough for printable pictures, but if somebody wants that they can
arrange for private mail.
