    Very interesting, as a colleague has just been comparing file sizes (with a view to bandwidth requirements) and found:
    “the email message I sent could take up the following file size, depending on how you

    By hotmail: 264kb
    By Yahoo: 1,010kb
    By gmail: 23kb
    By institutional Web mail system: 14kb
    By outlook (or similar mail software client): 6kb”
