Remembering that the Newton displays information, consistently, like a
note. Each note (or To-do item) has an icon in the upper left corner. This
Icon is like a "Get Info" button. Tap it and see what you can see.

I don't think I've run into any limits on what Mail V can send and/or
receive, size wise. However, individual notes have a limit. 16K if I
recall. There is a way to break past that limit, but that may not be
realistic, stable or practical.

This 16K limit may also include the size of any graphics in the note, as
well. You could try the BigNotes extension to see if it helps.


Good luck...
