delirium pissed off
My technical-novice father appears to have discovered the joys of sending 5MB "funny" email forwards. Lucky me. Anyone have any experience in trainging parents not to do this sort of thing?

Send back a 5Gb monster of a post and see how they like their SMTP host tripping out? Accompanied with the tag line "This may be big, but it's not clever" the length of time it takes them to download it ought to make them realise that sending boring but huge attachments is so passé. Each time they send you a huge yet boring attachment, give them another dose of the 5Gb email.

Either that or install on his computer next time you're visiting a program that lets you control his computer remotely, then use every opportunity to scare the shit out of him by moving his icons around his desktop.
