thoughts on attachment sizing

Email attachments cannot be of infinite size.  Different servers have different limits - but here is my general rule of thumb on attachment sizing:

Never send anything larger than 10 MB.
Only send things larger than 5 MB if you absolutely have to.
Most attachments should be 3 MB or less.
Large files should be sent using FTP or a service like yousendit
