You don't need an emailer that understands HTML to look at an attached jpeg, like the one I attach to this. :-) On the avoid-l mailing list the rule is to keep attachements under 500kb. Perhaps Wei Dai would like to adopt a similar rule. Also, I would be pleased to see pictures of you and others I communicate with via this list.
