If the files are available for normal ftp, it's not necessary to post
them here. Those without ftp access can use ftpmail.

To find out more about ftpmail, send "help" (without the quotes) in a
message sent to Be sure you post the address,
full pathlist, and all of the filenames so users can use ftpmail to get
these files.

Binary files can be very large and can, therefore, be a problem for those
who pay for incoming mail and/or use limited-resource systems.

Texts tend to be smaller and, therefore, less of a problem if posted to
the list. If for any reason you want to offer files that you cannot make
easily accessed without the help of a Web browser or similar tools, then
it would be a good idea to post them here unless we know everyone has
access to the proper tools.

Although ftpmail is not particularly convenient to use, it does help
conserve 'net resources when you want to offer large files.
