c.u.s.m policy - SCO

Last week I attempted to attach a 20KB text file (output of a hw command) to a reply, and found that the entire post never made it to the list. I know binaries are expressly forbidden, but is there a limit to the size of an attachment and/or to the number of lines allowed in a post to c.u.s.m? I checked the FAQ and it's not addressed.

    Default c.u.s.m policy

    Last week I attempted to attach a 20KB text file
    (output of a hw command) to a reply, and found that
    the entire post never made it to the list.

    I know binaries are expressly forbidden, but is there
    a limit to the size of an attachment and/or to the
    number of lines allowed in a post to c.u.s.m?

    I checked the FAQ and it's not addressed.

    Newsgroups don't have such limits.

    But you're using Compuserve (why, after all these years???), so go ask
    them.

    There are no policemen to enforce the rules. 20KB is small
    compared to some that have made it through.

    Perhaps your news provider or posting agent had a problem.

    Or - maybe it just got lost as articles sometimes do - for any
    number of problems.

    | Actually, in this case I was trying to post thru an sbcglobal.net newsserver
    | and I'm told that they may be the ones denying attachments of any kind
    | to certain "text-only" newsgroups.
    |
    | (Using CIS for email & usenet only, costs next to nothing and has good
    | newsgroup coverage. And like my SSN, it's easy to remember after 20 years.)

    I used to get a pretty full news feed here, but now only get the SCO
    groups. But I *far* prefer to use the news<->mail gateway (either Ed
    Hew's or my own) and deal with the SCO groups in email instead of in a
    newsreader.
