Subject RE: MIME-attachements bigger than 2GB?

I disagree.  They should probably look into some other technology.  If they are sending a binary
file, the conversion to MIME is quite costly.  I would recommended using a custom servlet
or something along those lines.  At a minimum look into some sort of compression.

Just my two cents worth.

2GB isnt that big. How may bits go into a 1200dpi poster at 32 bpp? That 
is the kind of thing that gets printed over a LAN...
