Brad doubled the amount of the limit, so I'm not sure why it's not working. You might have him set it at "0" (unlimited) and do a test post using standard user permissions. If adding attachments to a post currently works for him (or you) I'm thinking it might be a normal users permission ...

Re: Board attachment quota

Richard, You (or brad) can adjust this via the admin control panel. General -> Board Configuration -> Attachment Settings -> "Total Attachment Quota" Either increase the value or set it to "0" for unlimited. You can also set the max file upload size from the same screen.
