Even my friends who *know* I have dial-up access and who have been
admonished about sending me superfluous attachments still occasionally
send me stuff like a 2 MB image or PDF of, say, a poster advertizing
their upcoming art show rather than 1K of text.

I assume, from this that sending multi-meg PDFs, images and other low
S/N data is now commonplace and that a 10 MB mail spool would
overflow/wedge in no time if it supports more than a very few users.
