    Hi guys,

    I'm trying to send a large movie file (32MB) vie email to somebody with Entourage. I use googlemail and have compressed the file using the standard built-in app.

    But it wont send because its too large. Any suggestions?

    I could be wrong (often am), but I think that might be a Google limitation rather than an Entourage one. I don't use GMail so I can't confirm this though. :eek:

    This probably isn't a software issue, either on your end or your friend's end. Most mail servers don't allow you to send attachments that large, and most mail servers won't allow you to receive attachments that large. You'll need to either break up the file into smaller chunks (which would probably be hard, if it's one big file) or use another method to send it to your friend.

    Regards,
    Nadyne.
