DII(f)

#1
Quick question,

I have to send some photo's into work for monday (it's now Sat) to use on powerpoint, I need to get them onto DII(F);

If I email them to my account from my civ email, is there a restriction on the file or email size? it will be about 10Mb in total.

I know you can't recieve macros but I asume photo's are ok?

Sorry for such a dull question but hopefully someone will have an idea of how it works.

Should not be a problem, I have sent powerpoint presentations so photos should not be a problem.

Yes, I've done it. I'm not sure on the size limit but I would suggest you split it done into a number of emails.

Alternatively, if you've got an EGS account, upload them to Armynet and then download on Monday.

If you are a standard user - you will have an EGS account. If you are an Occassional, probably not.

Send them in normal format and not zipped or the e-nazis will strip the email (found out to my detriment). My experience is to try and keep it below 2Mb. Hope that helps.

Not sure what an EGS account is, I have an IGS and can surf the internet, is that the same thing?

I've sent them now and have not recieved a maildemon return saying they are blocked, so fingers crossed!!

IGS / EGS - same thing depending on what MoD System you are on. But the effect is you say - internet access.

If MailDaemon has not rejected you - you should be ok. The alternative was mentioned elsewhere - get an ArnyNet account and do it that way - defo works.

Now off to get p!ssed whilst watching Button try and not lose the World Championship.

Best bet mate is to ignore all the sensible answers above, get a flash pen out and use it, ensuring that at least two of your files have worms attached, If you get caught, sorry, when you get caught take your charge like a man, after all you probably deserve it uploading photo's onto your computer in the first place.

Are you for real? Are you trying to say that uploading a picture will be dangerous or that it will contain a virus? He's using graphics to enhance a presentation FFS. Maybe the young whippersnapper shouldn't be using Powerpoint at all, he should be using a viewfoil and chinagraphs. Strangely, images are reasonably standard on modern IT and this hardly constitutes dangerous behaviour. They day that "uploading photo's [sic]" becomes dangerous, they better close down the internet.

Thelynxeffect, if the images get bounced by email, upload them to your filespace on ArmyNET.
