I just noticed that some of my attachmnts from an email message didn't arrive but were silently dropped. I don't think silently dropping them is a very good policy, because people will attach harmless documents like install.log to a message and refer to that attachment. That is bound to add a lot of confusion.

Apart from changing the silent dropping olicy, can you allow the following file types:

.log

.wsdl

.ico

.as

.mxml

.cfm

.cfc

It seems that attaching .zip and .sitx files is not supported either. I just tried to attach one and got  "The content type of this attachment is not allowed."

Also I had a hard time finding this "Forum Support" link. It should be more prominent.

The idea behind my post was that if compressed file archives become allowed, then we can in essence post any type of file by compressing it. So when we are trying to help some one in say the InDesign forum (or some other forum), we can say "please attach your file in a compressed  format so that we can take a look at what may be wrong."

Don't you agree that would be a very useful improvement to these new forums? Some file size limit does seem reasonable.

No, I don't.  Usually problem files are huge, and they can be easily transported via yousendit.com.  We routinely use that in the forums.
