It sounds like the attachment may be to large for her to send via email. Email applications have a size limitation on how large of an attachment you can send. I would try to take the file break it down into smaller sizes and send those as attachments to see if they go through. For aneasy test before going through the trouble of creating smaller files make a word document. Name it test write this is a test document on the document and save it so it has some content in it and see if she can send it. If she can its probably the attachment is too large to be sent and you need to send it in smaller file sizes.
Please explain your question further ... "I am able to get the attment from a particular ... " a particular what?
If you are unable to receive a particular attachment from an individual, it depends on the attachment. Microsoft Outlook Express strips attachments of Microsoft Files. That is if someone sends you a MS Excel spread sheet or Word document, Outlook Express will strip the attachment for security. There's no way around this. The fix is have the person send you their file in .ZIP format. Then you can unzip it locally.
Whenever I send attachments like pictures on MS Outllok 2003, the e-mail gets hung up in my Outbox and yet the recepient gets my e-mail about 12 times. I have to go into the outbox the next day and try to delete it many, many times until it gets deleted.I'm using Vista on a new HP system. I hope you can solve this problem that has plagued me for a long time, even with MS Office 2007.
That's not a problem with Vista, rather it's most likely a problem with the web server. Make sure you entered all your web server information in correctly (pop3, SMPT, etc), and make sure your mail server supports MS Outlook 2007. Just double check everything. If that doesn't work, try completely un-installing and re-installing Outlook 2007. If all fails, try downloading a 3rd party mail application and see if that works.
The problem is with the other persons email service provider. Some providers limit the size of attachment you can send or recieve. You can sometimes get round this by breaking the attachment up and sending it in smaller size files. or use a webmail system that doesn't have a limit on attachment size e.g. hotmail.
