Certain files do not compress well, such as images/songs/video. therefore some files are pretty much the same size after compression. the file can be emailed as long as it is not an .exe file. either it has not been compressed correctly, or it is too large and the upload was canceled.

hopefully that helps

Cant mail a pic from desktop by right clicking and selecting send mail as i get an error that it cant send

Most email providers will limit the size of the email to 10mb. Some go as large as 30mb.
If you right click the image and select properties what is the file size (remember 1mb is 1024kb)?
If the file size is fairly large try compressing the software using software like winzip or winrar. To see if it can shrink the file enough to be sent via email.
Another thing to note is some email providers also do not allow certain file formats to be mailed as well. Most will allow you to mail a compressed file format (*.zip, *.tar.gz, *.rar).

Compressing Files

Well compression software will not do the trick since you have only 1 file.compression software works when you have so many files .......according to your need ,you can only use video converter to convert the file...I do use a video converter name Total Video Converter for converting .vob files and mpg files to avi it convert into 1/2 the size it occupies before converting.
Please let me know your feed-back.

I got your e-mail address.
I'm trying to send you the guide but the PDF file is big, so i'll have to use winzip to compress the file and make a bit smaller just to send it to you.
Once you get it, you will need to use winzip to open the file and to read it, you should use adobe acrobat reader 6.0
