Interesting. `twould have been nice if the file it was in had been named.

That phrase is not grepable in my home directory.  And my home dir 
contains no kwriterc.  kwriterc does exist in /home/amanda and 
in /home/nut according to a locate report. TDE R14.0.4 at current time.

And, this it the default kmail composer/editor. I tried using vim for a 
week or 2, at least a decade ago, but decided kmails composer was less 
trouble.  Biggest problem is that it autotriggers into html mode too 
easily. And me, not noticing the toolbar change, might send several gobs 
of crap before I discover that. If I turn it off in the options 
pulldown, it should STAY OFF until _I_ select otherwise!

I don't recall ever seeing that refusal msg, but the biggest attachment 
I've ever sent was a 2.2Gbyte wedding I'd shot and edited my shakes out 
of.  Its a digital Hi8 camera and the output, while near hidef quality, 
is about 0.1 gigabyte a minute.  kino, since it knows how to run that 
camera via its firewire interface, had no problem with the size of the 
finished product.
