I would maybe not want to use a service which makes documents publicly available.
Do all attachments count against my total? I seem to have much more than 128K worth of attachments already.
It seems troubling indeed if I could attach a file to a PM, which is late transferred from my "outbox" to another person's "inbox" and yet the attachment still counts against my allotment, since I would no longer have control over it. Maybe I misunderstand how it works.

May I take the liberty of suggesting some values for the settings?
- I would choose this as large as possible. If course it depends on the available web space.
- 3 is OK
- Would also set this to 3 (number of attachments to single PM)
- 512 K
- 5 M
