What happens if someone downloads more mail than will fit into RAM, and
does not know enough about linux to modify eznet.conf? I was thinking
there might be a way to foolproof BL3, but probably someone will still
manage to have problems with mail downloads. Someone once sent me a 3M
attachment (somehow a 1 page WORD file got larger than it should have
been) and that could even fill up a small hard drive.
