Yes. That is right, Jerry...
Why do I want to do attachments? 1. Because I would like to teach
SignWriting inside email messages...and 2. Because I would like people to
have the chance to write a message in SignWriting themselves and see it
show up in their email messages. I thought that would encourage people to
learn and use SignWriting.
How do we do that without overwhelming people? We are going from NO
attachments...to many attachments...and we may lose members if we overwhelm
I have been trying to find a compromise...so I limited it to SignWriting
and graphics files. But even that may be too much.
And thanks so much for the .FTP offer which I think is great....however for
me to teach how to write a sign inside an email message...the FTP, and the
web too, is not immediate enough...it is not inside the email message.
