Well, the TW perspective (loosely) on that one is
that I have been asked to forward my docs to customers
in the past -- both finished/released docs that some
poor integrator needed, on-site, and alpha docs that
a partner company was to vet or criticize -- and
have run into firewall grief. Whether the docs-as-
attachments were rejected for filesize, content, smell,
or whatever, our backup plan was usually to just place
the offending file on our ftp server, e-mail the
address to the interested party, and tell them that
they were on their own to retrieve the material.

At least one company used that as their final-straw
excuse to dump AOL and get a real internet provider. :-)

Er... don't some mailing lists bounce e-mail that
contains the word "AOL"? :-) :-)
