Sending email attachments locking up computer

When I send an email with attachment, sometimes zipped, sometimes not, my computer locks up and the email sits in the outbox. Sometimes I hear back that the email actually transmitted many times. Help

    Outlook 2003 through Embarq and Hotmail, I'm not sure how to answer next question. Maybe exchange server? This is a business with 8 of us in the network; we each have one Embarqmail address and one hotmail email address. Hotmail address being the mainly used email. Only 1 person has this locking up problem.

    This will happen with any size attachment, large or small. Pdf, jpg, plts, dwgs., have not noticed with .doc. As I said, 8 of us have the same conditions but only 1 has THIS particular problem. I have sent out 10mb on someone elses computer.

    what email software are you using? Are you on exchange server, POP, or web based email?

What's the size of the attachment?

What happens when you try to send a smaller attachment?

What is the attachment extension (zip, rar, exe, jpg)?

    Odd.

    Well would it be possible to just create a new account for this 1 person?

    Sometimes the best solution IS the easiest one.

First off this will occur if you are trying to trasmit over a Modem, which has a very very slow Connection. Also if this is a large email, and this is a company PC, they will most likely have a disk quota for your email. So, try to transmit a smaller attach. and see if you get the same results...

How to stop norton from preventing me to attach images on yahoomail


Yahoo Mail is a Web-based email program that is provided for free by Yahoo. Anyone can sign up for the service to send and receive emails from friends and family. Yahoo places restrictions on the and type of attachments that can be sent and received when using Yahoo Mail. Any email attachment that contains a virus, is too large or doesn't meet the file type requirements may be blocked by Yahoo.

Virus Scanner b> Yahoo Mail scans each attachment that arrives or departs from your inbox with Norton AntiVirus. If the virus scanning software detects a virus within an attachment, Yahoo will warn you and attempt to clean it. Yahoo does not promise that every virus will be detected or cleaned by the Norton AntiVirus software. Only accept attachments from people you know and trust. Don't attempt to open blocked attachments if it is known to harbor a virus. Large Attachments b> Attachments exceeding 25 megabytes will not attach to an email. Multiple attachments that exceed 25 megabytes will also be blocked by Yahoo Mail. Once your attachments reach 25 megabytes, you will no longer be able to add any additional attachments. If you have many attachments to send that exceed 25 megabytes, send several emails to send all of the attachments. If you are receiving attachments, let the sender know that you are unable to receive any attachments larger than 25 megabytes. Slow Connection Speed b> It may appear that Yahoo is blocking your attachments if you have a slow dial-up connection because they may never appear to load. Yahoo isn't actually blocking the attachment, the connection is just very slow. A 25 megabyte file could take over an hour to download with a 56K dial-up connection. Your computer may go to sleep or the download may be even slower if you surf the Web while your files upload. File Type b> Only certain file types can be sent using Yahoo Mail. Yahoo Mail allows you to add audio files, images, HTML files, word processing documents, spreadsheets and many other types of files as attachments. Some documents are not supported, but you can send unsupported file types by renaming them, including them in a RAR or ZIP archive, creating a Word document with the file, sending the file through Yahoo Messenger or you can upload the file elsewhere and send a link to the file via email.

Can someone tell me the steps to send a group of pictures as an attachment to an e-mail. I'm not good at the computer. Any help would be appreciated.


The exact steps may vary slightly based on what program or website you are using as your email provider, however, I will try to give you a general idea:

If you are going to send a lot of pictures at once, you might want to create a .zip file by putting them all in one folder, then right-clicking on that folder and clicking "Send to>>Compressed (zipped) folder". This will create a new, single file that has all of the images in it. This will make it easier to send.

Open your email and create a new message. Click the attachment button. Click browse, then select the zipped file on your computer (it will be wherever you created it, Desktop, My Documents, etc.). Click Add to email. Once you see the zipped file showing under attachments on your email, you are ready to send the email.

I can't send an Omniform attachment via Microsoft Outlook even if I convert the attachment to an HTML document.


I am not sure if this has been solved here but you can send the attachment as a zipped file. Right click on file. Choose send to. Choose zip file. Now attach zip file to email.

I wanted to attach a scan send by e-mail to a company, I found out no software to send e-mail by Yahoo


Hello, the maximum yahoo attachments is about 10MB. There is a limit to your attachments except if you zip it and attached. You can try gmail.com it gives you more capacity.

Send pictures through email


download the pictures onto your computer then attach them to the email, some digital images are too big to send through to some email accounts so i suggest you either resize them before sending them or zip them.

I hope this helps

Unable to receive emails from certain contacts


I'm assuming that "send" should be "receive" because you most definitely can send attachments from a Hotmail account, no matter what type, as we'll see in a second.
There are two solutions, neither of them pretty:
  1. Have the sender send the attachment again, with a different name, or as a compressed file. ".zip" files are fine. ".exe" files are not. So if your sender creates a .zip archive of the .exe file that he's trying to send you, that you can save, and then decompress back into it's original form and name.
    Heck, just renaming the file is enough. Have the sender rename the .exe file into a .txt file and send that as an attachment. You'll be able to download it, and then rename it back to a .exe.
  2. Forward the attachment to a non-Hotmail account. Hotmail doesn't mention this approach, but sure enough, even though you can't open the unsupported attachments, you can forward them to a different account on a different service. If that service allows you to open the attachment, you've got it.
Hotmail's goal here is, obviously, to make it difficult to open malware in attachments by accident. You have to take steps of some sort; you have to think about it.
If you go through those steps, and you still get infected? Well, it was your own doing.

You have to shrink the picture down and zip it up.
