Sending email attachments over 1MB

Has anyone worked out how to send email attachments over 1MB without Microsoft Office sending multiples and remaining in the "outbox"? Have turned of my Internet Security but it makes no difference. This is an ongoing issue for many people.

    My ISP limit is 12GB. Am currently trying to send an attachment of 2MB which will also stay permanently in the OUTBOX until deleted.
    Many thanks.

I routinely send attachments over 1 MB. It usually hangs around the 20 MB mark. There is no solution to this problem however if you upload the file to a site like rapidshare (www dot rapidshare dot com) then you can upload the entire file and it will give you a link to the file that you can then send to your recipient.

Outlook is sending multiple emails

Check your outbox and make sure the email you tried to send is no longer there because outlook tends to try and try sending a previously unsent email message.
Make sure the outbox is cleaned up.
In sending email with attachments, make sure the attachment is not too big that it exceeds 5mb to avoid these type of incidents, as a work around for multiple attachments you can try sending them in a different email message.

Sending through email

Easiest way to do this is to just attaching the file within your email host. As long as the doc has been saved, and the doc is under the size limitations of your email host, you will be able to attach it in an email. If it will not attach than there is an issue with the email host.

If you are looking to send it within Office 2007, then you would select the windows symbol in the top left on the home tab, select sending. From there you will choose the format you would like to change it in. The only issue with that is if you do not have a default email set in Word. It should prompt you how to set it up.

I hope this answers your question.

I am trying to send my professor my paper and the microsoft works word , won't let me send it, what other options do I have I have until 1:00 today

Rather than trying to send from within a "word document", have you tried saving a copy, quitting word, going into your email program, and attaching it as a file that way, then sending?

(As long as you attach something, then whether he can open it or not, he knows that something got sent!!)

If there isa more specific error message, please post an additional comment.

When an emailing an attachment for an example a resume. They other user can not open the attachment i had sent. How can I get this opened?

The possible causes are two:

1. You are sending out a format which the recipient doesn't support (e.g. OpenOffice). To solve this, install utilities such as PDFPrinter, or export the document as PDF. This is a format which almost anyone can read, even if they can't edit it. Otherwise go for Microsoft Office or, if you use OpenOffice, set it to save as "Microsoft Word Document".

2. The recipient has some kind of security in his/her computer which disables opening of all kinds of attachments, possibly excepting only some "deemed safe" ones. There's not much you can do here. Sending documents in Microsoft Office formats sometimes improves chances they'll be deemed secure.

As of today. I'll emails with attachment I'm getting from office emails are coming in as windat files. Do you know what's going on?


Let me guess, the emails are coming from a Windows PC not a Mac. There's no problem with your Entourage. The problem is the Windows PC sending emails to you.

Based on my research, This issue usually happens when a Windows PC sending emails with attachment to a Mac is running Windows Vista and using Goggle Chrome as their default browser.

Hope this helps.

Microsoft Outlook. Problems openning blocked attachments

Before attaching the MDB file to the email - send it to a compressed folder. Right click the MDB file and choose "send to" -> Compressed folder. Then you can drag and drop the compressed folder to the email - which should show as a zip file. this is a compressed file which "should" email without any issues.
