One can configure Outlook Express--at least some versions--to cut large
messages into small pieces.  Found while dealing with a support issue which,
paraphrased, was "I send one message, and John receives 6 messages from me."

Steven didn't seem to post to the list using Outlook Express (the headers
didn't make it clear what he did use) so I didn't say anything earlier,
although I should have.

My Windows machine is currently safe in its carrying case (no viruses get in
that way), so I can't find the setting.
