It would certainly help anybody who wants email lots of video files. (But isn't there some limit on the size of files that can be sent via email?)

I don't think there is a theoretical limit but in practice most ISPs will impose some limit.

4MB+ isn't unusual ... take a few of those to get to a terabyte :relief:

Behind time are we? :) People have been trading things like that since AOL 2.5 came out, AOL has been used to e-mail warez for years, Also I other home based ISP's e-mail service, Yahoo! and Google have send limits, as do web based e-mail providers.. So warez via e-mail is not a new thing. :wave:

No flaming, just information post. :cool: :-)

Interesting. I've already seen a bunch of people on message boards state that they used/used to use AOL "for warez". How does/did using AOL make it easier to download warez?
