        I think it worthwhile to include a tooltip cautioning users of the consequences of this setting.

        From Paul on Discord

        Mail servers have various limitations on attachment sizes and file types. Including attachments significantly increases the risk that the email will not be accepted
        So if we include attachments, then we cannot always include the attachments. We will have to either accept that emails will be filtered out or bounce, or we have to set limitations on file extensions and file size and only send attachments that meet those requirements.. which, would be arbitrary since it's not standardized. Then, we have to also include something about there being attachments that could not be sent.. in which case, we might as well just require them to access in their browser to get them all.
        Another concern is the security of attachments.. if a client attaches something private, should we really be sending it to you via unsecured email?
