moderated Re: Deleting attachments when out of space #update


For some lists I monitor the attachment image storage for storage that has gotten out of control.  It is not possible to review and search all attachments conveniently.

For example, video files eat up a lot of space and are not subject to the size limitations for image attachments, they don't show-up in the e-mail photo album, very cumbersome to find

and when found it is impossible for an owner/moderator to strip the attachment and save the message.

Before taking Draconian messages, it would be prudent to analyze what files are found stored as attachments and perhaps ban/restrict certain file types that are currently stored in attachments,

but are not controlled by current image size restrictions.
