How To Keep Large Attachments From Replicating

How can you keep large attachments from replicating in Notes R4 or R5?

You can enable the "Receive Summary and 40KB of Rich Text" option.

To prevent a server replica from receiving large attachments, select File,
Replication, Settings and select the "Receive Summary and 40KB of Rich Text"

If the database is a local replica copy, this option will not be available in
the Replication Settings dialog box. In order to select this option for a
local replica, go to the Replicator tab on the Notes workspace; right-click on
the database on the Replicator tab and then select Options from the menu that
appears. Select "Receive Documents from Server" and then click the down-arrow
below that and select "Receive Summary and 40KB of Rich Text".

When you open the replicated document, the word (TRUNCATED) appears in the
title bar. To replicate the rest of the document at a later date, open it when
you are connected to the server and select Actions, Retrieve Entire Document.
