Outlook 2007 will not upload large file atachements

PROBLEM: User was unable to send large file attachments (Over 1.6 GB) using Outlook 2007. Webmail will allow the file to be attached.
RESOLUTION: The default timeout value in Outlook 2007 is 60 seconds, too short for most ISP connection speeds to send large files. Resolution is changing the default timeout to 300 seconds using these steps. In Outlook, Click Tools, Accounts, Change, Advanced, Server Timeout, there change the timeout to 300 seconds save and exit.

Cannot receive large files


Yahoo cannot send message with more than 10MB attachment size. You need to break the file if it possible or zip the file to be less than 10MB.

need to delete email w/2 large of attachment after clicking send


1. Go the File menu, then choose Work Offline in order to stop Outlook from trying to send all mails:
2. Switch to the Outbox.
3. You now have two options:
a. Move the message: you can drag-and-drop or use the Edit: Move to Folder menu item to move the e-mail to your drafts folder. This will allow you to re-open the offending e-mail and slim it down by removing the large attachments before attempting to resend it.

b. Delete the message: this will immediately remove the message from the Outbox and put it in Deleted Items.
4.

If you receive an error at this point that says the message is being transmitted, close Outlook, wait for Outlook to exit (you may need to use Task Manager and wait for the Outlook.exe process to exit), and then start Outlook again and repeat steps 2-3. In some cases, the item may not be released until Outlook has restarted.
5. Go to the File menu, deselect Work Offline to start sending and receiving mail again.
