Sending more than three attachments at one time - 12/17/07

Web Mail currently limits you to adding three file attachments to a message, using the three entry boxes at the bottom of the compose view. We are working on updating that feature to remove this limitation. In the meantime, user Jack Sweitzer has come up with a very clever way to work around the limit, that doesn't require using zip files (as I've suggested before).

Someone asked, on Dec 5, 2007: "Can't you remove the 3 attachment limit on the "write message" dialog box? This is a real nuisance. I often need to include more attachments!"

Until this is changed, I found a way around it. First, post your three attachments in the boxes provided, and then save to Draft. Next, re-open your draft message . . . your three attachments will show above as attachments, and your three boxes for adding attachments will be empty, allowing you to add three more. Continue until all your attachments are added. I recently did it for 10. The only problem is, if the sequence of attachments is important, you'll need to add them in reverse order; that is, say you have 9 items to attach: start with #7-9, then 4-6, then 1-3.

Thanks for the tip!

The box where I login to WebMail (type email address and password) is no longer in the middle of the page. It has shifted to the bottom of the screen. Is it still secure? Ken

I believe a few other users reported this display problem on the login page, and it was due to using a very old browser that we don't support. If you have an IE version lower than 5.5, a Safari version lower than 1.3, or a Firefox version lower than 1.5, we don't support it and you take your chances on whether things work right or not (on our site and most others). Please update your browser.

This display problem has no effect on the security of the login page, which is always fully secure using https for your login data.

When forwarding an email that has embeded graphics or photographs the image is replaced with a placeholder and the photo is lost.

When replying to a message or forwarding indentation and line on left margin is added, option to turn this off would be nice.

Ability to set default font, size and color during composition would be nice.

Option to view the invisible embedded formatting during edit compose so it can be deleted if needed.

Thank You
