Hello accmail ...

Here is a reminder for people who are using accounts on
gmail.com (googlemail.com in some countries), or any
domain that uses Google Apps for email.

Gmail does not allow you to receive executable files.
Here is the (english) text of the Google help page
'Some file types are blocked'

"As a security measure to prevent potential viruses,
Gmail doesn't allow you to send or receive executable
files (such as files ending in .exe) that could contain
damaging executable code.
Gmail won't accept these types of files even if they are
sent in a zipped (.zip, .tar, .tgz, .taz, .z, .gz)
format. If this type of message is sent to your Gmail
address, it is bounced back to the sender

So you cannot use ACCMAIL methods to retrieve an
executable file if your email account is on Gmail or any
domain that uses Google Apps.

Here at szs.net we have noticed several people with such
accounts persistently requesting executable files from
www4mail at szs.net -- a pointless and futile extra load
on our servers, which have to retrieve the files, split
them, send them to a Gmail account, and then handle the
bounces -- over and over again. We have decided that in
future that sort of activity will be treated as abuse,
with immediate effect.
