Bad shareholder communications from Westfield

I'm all for going paperless and have switched to paperless notifications of most things, (although I do find myself printing a lot out to hand to my accountant at the end of the year which rather makes me feel like a distributed printing service).

A few Westfield shares means that I get notifications such as the one shown here that just came in.

I noticed that it took rather a long time for my email client to download the email and the "hero" image of "Westfield Sydney City - Feb 12" rendered progressively.

It turns out that the image they embedded in the email, from an email & SMS marketing service called Vision6, is a 6MB image which measures 3495 x 2713 pixels!

It's a lovely image but really, this is abuse of my inbox. Please don't do that.
