to your inbox? I am so sick of people sending me huge files which take up to 1/2hr to download.

Can you access your emails directly on the server? that way you don't need to download them, you can delete them on there and download the rest. Not sure what else you can do (apart from telling people that you will physically damage them should they send any more big emails - actually sometimes you don't realise how big a picture is...)

I use Outlook and you can limit the size of emails that are downloaded by...

Tools
Options
Mail delivery
tick the box that says "don't download messages greater than [xx] KB.

When I was on dial up I set the limit at 500 kb. For every email that was not downloaded becuase it was over 500 kb, I just checked my mail box direct from the internet to see if it was woth downloading or not.
