View Full Version : sending large email via microsoft outlook

I have been having a problem sending emails with large attachments, I have two pc's which one of them runs microsoft outlook 2003 and the other runs microsoft outlook 2007. I have the same problem on both pc's in which the email doesnt get sent if it has large attachment such as a 6Mb attachment.

I have an email with Orcon but my ISP is quicksilver who are now owned by woosh.

Can anybody help in overcoming this problem?

Outlook has a limit on the size of attachments that it can send

Do you get any kind of error message?

Outlook has a limit on the size of attachments that it can send

Who told you that Gary
The attachment size you can send is determined by the ISP mail server.

Try turning off the outgoing mail scan in the Antivirus program and see if that helps.
Also increase the server timeout setting in Outlook
