    Does anyone else have a problem with .mac when someone sends you a large attachment or seperate pictures? Its incredibly slow to load in mail, and I'm so tired of hearing my girlfriend say when I had hotmail they loaded instantly.

    I've explained that in hotmail you where just seeing the thumbnail etc etc but I cant seem to get her to understand. So is there an option for mail I could use that would speed this process up? I mean i'm only sending 100k size pictures and she's on a cable modem.

    hrm. found it in the .mac discussions it seems like a common problem. Wont be paying for this overpriced service again. Being that iDisk is the most painful thing to use in the world.

    Yeah, the speed of .Mac is dismal. I've gone back to my ISP-provided account.
