    I get this message http://www.box.net/shared/bgogtn0usz when i send a big file, in general more than 10 mb, 20mb. And the message only appears after it finishes uploading (after waiting it for like 20 mnts and more!!!!!!:mad::mad:) then it fails to send i think.
    I run the connection doctor and it says it is connected to the stmp network ...
    help !!

    When I'm typing an email in Mail and attach a file larger than 15mb, a red message appears in the bottom-right corner of the windows that says "Maximum 15mb". I think it's a limit placed by your ISP (or email server).

    Different ISP's have different maximum sizes of emails they will accept. You obviously exceeded the maximum of your ISP.

    I don't think that's true because a week ago, i sent a message to a recipient and in cc to myself and i did receive the message and an other message, "Delivery Status Notification (Failure)" (from post master, probably an other problem)
    btw how can i know that limit by the isp, give them a call ?
