Re: [PLUG] OT: mail - attachments

Was the attachment over 10M? That's the limit at Drexel.

I'm a Drexel student, too, but I don't bother using Drexel's webmail any longer. Instead, I have a Gmail account with a much larger quota, and all my Drexel e-mail is forwarded there automatically. This is especially helpful for people with multiple e-mail accounts.

My daughter has not been able to send attachments with her Drexel mail
account.  She is using the web interface with Safari as her browser
(which I thought was Konqueror ported to Mac OS X).  I asked her to send
me an attachment and the message came through as if no attachment had
been attempted (as opposed to being mangled).  The relevant headers are:

MIME-version: 1.0
Content-type: text/plain
Content-transfer-encoding: 7bit

Is she doing something wrong or is this a known issue with the Drexel
web mail interface and Safari?
