Bad idea is newbies attach 1MB of bmp files for screenshots. Most mail lists
stripts out attachments, so, there's no real reason to INN don't do that

Where can i find such thing? This is a crucial thing for me.

It would be great, but the old news is down for 3 weeks! That's why i'm
trying to host it again. Can you imagine what is 3 weeks of absense in a
community with more than 100 messages per day?

Some people read the news from google html based nntp, but the old server
got some problems to interface with it, so messages was not posted
correctly. I don't know if this was a google or the old IIS problem.
