Dear all,

I do not have a suggestion how to make that statement more clear, rather a suggestion for possible addition: propose some options how to share those files with statalisters.

My personal favourite course of action for files I can't attach is to upload the files to my webpage and give a link in the email. Such behaviour doesn't seem to be very uncommon in statalist (links to repec and postings of Friedrich Huebler as an example).
Second such suggestion would be: in case of text files (like ado/do) to use copy/paste

Probably there are more options for shearing your files with everybody, but these two seemed the most straightforward to me.

Best regards,
Taavi Lai

The Statalist FAQ is totally explicit.
In section 2.2,
"We ask you not to post formatted messages or attachments. In fact, Statalist software may trap these formatted messages or attachments without sending an error message to you. Please make sure that your mailer is set to "Plain Text" for outgoing messages (or the equivalent for your mailer); that is, do not send HTML, Rich Text, VCards, winmail.dat files, other attachments, or anything other than Plain Text."
And again in section 3.
"Please do not include attachments. Many members have mailers that cannot handle them. In any case, attachments can spread viruses and clog up mailers with unwanted large files."

If anyone has any suggestions about how this could made
clearer, do please let me know.
