E-Mail Size Limitations

By War|ock ·
MS Outlook 2000. I'm trying to send Digital Camera Pictures. These files are from 1 mb to 2 mb in JPG format. I attach the picture in the e-mail with only a few lines of text explaining the picture. It sends about 500k - 600k of the e-mail and then it times out, every time, and disconnects from my ISP.

I set the timeout to 5 min, used Eudora, ran the windows setup program, updated to MS Office SR1, ran windows update, and went through the registry with a fine tooth comb.

None of the aboveworked.

E-Mail Size Limitations

It may be as simple as your ISP having e-mail size limitation. My ISP explicitly limits attachment size to 1Mb. Anything above that won't go. In your case it may be 500Kb. You can break your *.jpg files into smaller blocks (using rar or similar program) and your recepients can then reassemble them into one large file.

I have been working with My ISP to resolve the problem and they said there is no restriction on file size. The files are going to be used by a MAC, if they ever get there. The files never leave my machine though.

Your ISP has limited your email size,try using a zip utility if available to send the email.
Another option would be to save the file as a jpeg to condense it some.

The Pictures are going to be used in a newspaper, so I have to use the best Quality.

If you are able to e-mail files smaller than 500Kb you can easily break large files into smaller chunks using RAR software and e-mail them each in a seperate e-mail. On the recieving side they'll be able to reassemble them into one big *.jpg file.

Do they make RAR software for MAC?

The people on the other end just want the picture. It can be done, without workarounds.

I tried to upload them to a blank web page then I could send the link for the picture in an e-mail and they wouldn't do that,(lazy people).

I appreciate your help, but I need a cure, not a band aid.
