That's the only reason I ever send one. Although that leads me to the
single worst abuse of e-mail, having little to do with HTML.
People who use e-mail as a file transfer system.
I'm really getting tired of explaining to people that their 20MB e-mails
are bouncing because sanely operated servers refuse such abominations.
Best of all: The time someone e-mailed me a 650MB ISO image. He called
to complain he'd e-mailed me an hour ago and it was still going out and
something therefore was wrong with the server.
