View Full Version : Prob sending jpg attachment

20-05-2002, 08:54 PM
I scanned a picture which I wanted to send as an attachment to an email, but when I went to send it, and it was running by Norton's checker first, it was taking an age. After one hour, and only 20% completed, the connection was interrupted (it is set to one hour) and a message said Open your email client and resend from Sent Messages folder'. When I did this, it bounced back with a note 'OE removed access to the following unsafe attachments in your mail: (name of attachment)'.
Sounds like a virus, but according to my complete system scan I don't have one. I am up to date with Norton's after earlier having that Klex scare. Can anyone tell me what is up?

The file could be too big. Have you tried sending it again?

How big is too big?! Or is that like saying 'How long is a piece of string?' It is 128kb.

A 128Kb jpg should be a cinch. Sounds like more than a simple file size issue.

Have you tried sending a file from another app of a similar size eg a Word doc or Excel file? Do they get through?
