Outlook Express 6.0 Size limit

Is there any way to limit the size of INCOMING emails? I have some friends that continually send videos, large pictures, etc and I am on a dail-up system and it takes forever to download. So, rather than blocking these friends who forget, I would like to limit the size of incoming emails to say 500kb or so? Thanks in advance for any advice!
I am running Windows XP, home edition.

Hey MissDixi,

unfortunately there is no setting in Outlook express for message size........The only thing you can do is to ask your ISP to limit the size of the attachment.

Cheers

I was afraid of that. I will just have to keep begging my friends to keep it small or I shall block them! Ha! Thanks for your quick answer.

Not true. You CAN set the message limit in OE6. click on Tools> Message Rules> Mail...> New Mail Rule

Check the condition box where it allows you to specify the size limit.
