Don't send them. Attachments greatly increase the burden on the server; in 
the past, we saw the server go down for many hours because someone sent a 
moderately large attachment.

In fact, don't send attachments to *anyone* without permission or 
invitation. In these days, what with viruses, etc., we should all know not 
to open attachments even from friends; after all, if the friend's system 
has a virus, it might be sending out mail to everyone on his address list.

I open unsolicited attachments from clients sometimes, but only after 
making sure they are not executable *and* after they have been 
virus-scanned. Even then I am apprehensive.

Much better to get permission first!
