This same setting can be set on groups.io for the subscription. It's under advanced preferences.

I'm in the same boat; dark skies == rural location.

I set my email client (Mozilla Thunderbird) to NOT download any email
larger than 1 MB. I can click "download remainder of message" if I
choose. But if I simply delete the truncated message, it's also deleted
on the email server, never to be seen again.

That's what happened to the two recent posts with large attached images.
