15 mb file in my Email

Discussion in 'Nikon' started by michael_bradtke, Dec 20, 2007.

  1. Can any one tell me why I was sent not one but three 15 mb files from Photo.net
    They said they where copy's of the Nikon forum from Monday through Thursday
    Did any one else receive these

    I haven't received anything like that, so far.

    Exactly who is the sender of that e-mail? Are those just text or HTML files that are hopefully safe to open? I wonder what the content is.
  3. Michael... You are so lucky!
  4. At least YOUR email service delivered them. Many others would balk at message sizes like
  5. I didnt receive 15mb files, but (2) 4mb files. It looks like its all text, so no idea how it is 4mb in size. I just deleted them anyways.
  6. Sorry guys there was a slight typo. It should read 1.5 mb not 15 mb.

    It said it was from the Nikon forum
    I don't open unsolicited attachments.Since I did not want to open them I deleted them. I can say that the font in the email looked the same as the font from the last "official" email I got from Pnet.

    I am happy with my ISP but they would not transmit a file that size over email.

  7. Given that you do appear to have email notification for the Nikon forum turned on, I'm going to guess that the overly large size had something to do with the hardware failure and rollback from yesterday. Contact me, or post in the feedback forum if it happens again.
  8. Thanks Josh.
    I did not know that I had email notification turned on.

    I also have e-mail notification for every new thread started in this forum, but I am getting "instant" notification each time. If you are subscribing to the "bulk" digest format that collects a bunch of posts before they send it out, that may be the problem.
  10. I got 5 of them, 3 Nature forum and 3 Business forum. I do have those turned on but never received more than one of each before.
