    I am having issues with email size on my i9100. I use GMAIL as interim client, but I am using Outlook on a local machine (not over exchange server).

    Is there any way to limit emails to 20kb per mail or some such? Would using an app like CompanionLink help provide this feature? I cannot even turn off the downloading of internet pictures in my emails, which I could control on my old WM6.5.

    Also how about in roaming mode in another country, can I limit the email size for this setting (in case this is not possible for the non-roaming case).

    I am still a little new to the Droid world (but learning). Thanks for any help.

    Just to clarify - CompanionLink handles contacts, calendars, tasks, & memos, but not email. Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with a tool that will do what you are looking for. Hopefully someone else on the forums is!

    That's a new one I haven't heard about, but I do understand what you are trying to accomplish. I will do some research and see if I can find a solution.

    Thanks David and Aatos for your replies.

    I now understand that CompanionLink will not help my email problem.

    I am worried that when I am out of the country on roaming, that I cannot control the email traffic volume and will get hit with a big bill for volume.

    I do anyway use SpB Wireless, so atleast I can see the traffic problem as it happens! This is a great tool which I used for the last 3 years on WM.
    Cheers.

    For anyone interested. I think that this issue is solved: I installed and now use K9 mail app. This has control over downloads, showing pictures etc
