    i just discovered that entourage has a limited file attachment size that it will allow you to attach. is there a setting that will override or adjust the file size so i do not have to compress it or use another piece of software like Alladin in order to attach it and send it?

    thanks,

    What type of file are you trying to send? And what size?

    Cheers.

    I don't think it's an Entourage problem, at least not with size. I regularly used to send and receive files of several Megabytes without any problems.

    Ok, (I know this one, I'm so excited!).

    This happened to me with a Pages document.

    What's happening is that by trying to attach this file, Entourage thinks you're trying to attach a folder. If you look at the message you're getting, it'll say something along those lines.

    Try right-clicking the Numbers document, or a Pages document, and you'll see an option of "Show Package Contents". this is because a Numbers document is not a single document like a Word file is. It's a collection of files stored in a directory. This goes for Pages too.

    So you can use "Create Archive of "[your Numbers file here] and then email that file, that will work fine because then Entourage is just sending one file.

    Cheers.
