Send posted media as attachment (preferred) or with a fully qualified URL (alternative) in the mail notification

Another thing I noticed using my mail client for following Discussion[1] is the way attachments are treated:


That’s pretty useless. It should, at the very least, be a fully qualified URL to the picture. Preferably, it should be attached to the e-mail. Depending on the size of the attachment, I could imagine there being a cut off, above which the file will not be attached, but only linked for easy viewing in the browser.

Is that something that can be configured?

  1. Quoting in e-mail notifications does not comply with e-mail standards ↩︎


I’ll look into that.

Being busy opening an issue for the quote formatting, I came across the
following thread:

I skimmed through it and it appears there are settings to include
attachments and set a size limit.

Ah, there are. What do we think is a good limit?

email total attachment size limit kb
  • 100
  • 1000
  • 2000
  • 10000
  • 20000
  • more?

0 voters

That’s another thing on the growing list of things not available through
e-mail… :frowning:

I think 2MB sounds reasonable. Anything bigger, if it’s an image, has
not been resized/compressed properly, I’d say.

With 10MB or larger, I think we might be hitting MSP limits sooner or later.

PS: I will head over to the website to vote.

3 posts were split to a new topic: Polls don’t work by email

The poll didn’t get a lot of interest, but 3 of the 4 voters selected 2000, so that’s what I’ve set the limit at for now. We can, of course, revisit if need be.
