Would increasing my memory from 256kb to 512kb help to shorten the time it
takes to upload a file attachment to an outgiong email? Thanks

not really, your bandwidth (dialup, DSL or cable) is the way
to increase speed.

No. The amount of RAM affects a lot of things, but how long it
takes to do something over the internet isn't one of them.

Thanks a bunch for your reply and the answer. I guess I recieved the wrong
info when my DSL was installed-- or I didn't ask the right question. In any
case all works well. Thanks.

Thanks a lot for your reply. As I wrote to Jim Machlin: "Thanks a bunch for
your reply and the answer. I guess I recieved the wrong info when my DSL was
installed-- or I didn't ask the right question. In any case all works well."
You both have set my mind at ease.

No...it depends on your internet connection, not the amount of memory in
your system.

There's a lot of factors, e.g. the size of the attachement, your connection
type (dialup, broadband (DSL, Cable) etc)
