How do you skip large emails?

  1. Click Prefs from the main menu, then the Getting tab.
  2. Change the number in the blank in the sentence, Skip all mail over __ K in size.
  3. You can put any number here up to 9999 K.
  4. If you wish to receive email larger than that put a zero (0) in the blank.  This seems strange, but it works.
  5. Large emails can paralyze your email retrieval, so a realistic number is best.
  6. You can retrieve any skipped email by changing the number, then getting mail again.
