Sorry Ira, I disagree. I think attaching the file AND including a pointer
to
its location on the ftp server is the best approach. That way if you can
look at it from your e-mail directly you can, otherwise you can retrieve
it from the server. Almost all the e-mail software I am familiar with
allows
you to specify whether an attachment is downloaded or not when you get
the mail.

HELP,
Could you folks PLEASE stop sending PDF and Word files as enclosures
(which should not be happening on an IETF-chartered working group
list) and start regularly posting them to the PWG server and mailing
a pointer?
I've missed the context of a fair amount of discussion lately. Also,
when PDF is the most 'neutral' format posted (and not flat text),
some of us have great difficulties keeping up.
Roger, I haven't even looked at my scratch file copy of your note
yet, so maybe you sent a pointer.
Please lighten up on the huge opaque enclosures. Some of us only
get mail through a dial-up interface.
Thanks,
