    I'm trying to send a few mp3s using gmail. From what I've heard, gmail has a 2 gig storage capacity and is good for sending large files. Unfortunately I cant seem to get it to send any of these mp3s. The entire size of the message is hardly bigger than 20mb and the individual files all less than 5mb. I've tried with both mail.app and the browser interface. In mail.app, the message just sits in the outbox and in the browser the page stays forever trying to send. I dont understand why I'm having such trouble, as i've heard of people sending disk images and such across google mail. Any help is appreciated

    Thanks

    last time
    i checked gmail only allowed you to send 10MB at a time, and the recipients email provider must allow for that as well. also 10MB will take you some time to send (several minutes).
