Sorry, no PHP experience. I know friends who have. I will check.

My idea starts because when you subscribe to mail2forum, that's me and another two or three you said, if there is an attachment to the post with the attachment mod the attachment is mailed and it may clog your inbox or cost a lot in some ISP solutions.
Even a short mp3 can be several KB, and someone may opt for WAV files and the such...
It can even get worse if spambots start posting attachments. These are the ones that I mentioned to be clever.
So it would be good to have mail2forum include a link to the attachment and not the file itself.
Not urgent, as mail2forum is off at the moment.
Cheers,

i'm not aware of any spammers posting in this thread Lorenzo :scratch:

i have no idea what the next version of mail2forum has in store for attachments at all really.

you cannot be responsible for what people send to you.
but in this case, it's each user's responsibility to manage their own email, if people don't like it, they can always unsubscribe. i don't know when or if the mail2forum will be installed anyway. i only feel obligated because of the one member who is blind and cannot actually read the forum. the rest of you can go suck an egg :D :P :mrgreen:

just kidding about the egg part.

No, no, no...
Eggs are for Easter. It's Christmas, I'll suck a panettone.
Ciao,

for example: uploads/1180135123.mp3
I tried this by chance, so I don't know of any others.

do you have a link to that thread? or is that from the old upload form? if from the old one, it's gone or broken.
