Re: Attachment without nntp

According to Marc Girod on 2/29/2008 4:05 AM:
| Well, I tried now the alternative road, and installed TunderBird.
| I guess I got what I expected: neither nntp nor snntp (563) ports are
| drilled in my company's firewall.
| So, this road is blocked too, no?
I've been annoyed at gmane, too - they provide both http and nntp
gateways, but only their nntp gateway allows attaching files. I may be
shot for suggesting this, but there are other mail gateways out there
besides gmane. For example, nabble.com provides an http gateway and
allows attaching files when composing posts to a wrapped mailing list.
Then again, nabble's idea of an attachment is sending a URL that requires
web access on the reader's end to download the file, rather than sending a
multipart message with the file attached in the message itself, so that
idea doesn't really fly on this list, either.
Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
