Hi Carlo,

marvelous, how the idea of "inconvenient" changed over the years - The 
scrubbing is done for 2 reasons: transport bandwith and storage. Big 
attachments slow down dial-up connections, eat up download budgets and 
blow storage limits of some mail providers. Actually, with enough big 
images sent over a mailing list you could send half of the recipients 
into mail provider denial of service, which they'd have to sort out with 
their fallback bandwith limit - not exactly fun. Scrubbing ain't that 
bad, ey?
