You can use online services like
mailbigfile.com
transferbigfiles.com
yousendit.com
These are all FREE

If your staying within the mac family you can exchange files with a MobileMe account (formally .Mac). This account can also work with WIndows with an web page you create with the service.

How do i send email with a large attachment from my imac


Hi
Attachments to email should be less than 10mb.
Your ISP sets the limit.
Open an email and get it ready to go.
Put cursor where you want the attachment to sit on the page.
Drag your file to be attached, from the Desktop to the Email window & drop. Then clik send.
For larger attachments:
Use the free DropBox to share files with friends. You place files to be shared in the Dropbox Folder which shows in the top menu of a Mac. Very simple to use, once set up. https://db.tt/7ByRbUj

Every time i try to send an email with snow leopard mail that has an attachment of around 10 mb it never sends. However, if i turn and do it with ms outlook it works just fine. What gives?


OS X mail can be quite sluggish at times. I know it sounds stupid, but have you tried just leaving it for a while? What does the activity monitor/loading bar in the bottom left show?
I have never had problems with this, but if I did, I would use a service like Dropbox or YouSendIt to share such large files.
Hope that helped!

Cannot send large email attachment on Snow Leopard Mail


I ran into this problem back in October and found a solution. By default EWS limits attachment sizes to ~ 8MB. You can customize the size limit by making changes on the Exchange 2007 server.
Modify C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\ClientAccess\Owa\web.config and C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\ClientAccess\exchweb\EWS\web.config
Path will vary depending on your Exchange installation. Search for maxRequestLength in both files. Replace with a figure that doubles the actual allowed file size. In my testing 50000KB = 25MB attachment being allowed. Note there are other settings in the GUI of Exchange that can also limit file send size and are well documented in Microsoft KB. Note2: You will have to make this change again after every Exchange service pack.

IMac G3 Not Starting


Hey, RexKing:

Your problem is hard to diagnose with your current description without knowing where the clicking sound is coming from or exactly what it sounds like, but most likely the problem resides either with the power supply or its connection to the circuit boards. If you have access to any scrapped G3 iMacs to cannibalize for parts at an E-recycling depot, you can probably find just about anything you need, as long as you get the right model, as they changed key components a few times, but, like cars, a lot of parts cross over. The exact model description is on the bottom in really fine print.

In any case, you will have to take it apart to check out the power supply and/or other components, which is a bit tricky without a guide. You can find a really comprehensive Apple iMac G3 service document, for many of the later models, posted at this URL as an 11 Mb PDF file:

http://www.scribd.com/doc/103447/iMac-G3-Disassembly-Guide?autodown=pdf

Only catch is that to download it you need to sign up for a free SCRIBD account. (It's a document sharing co-op site.) Hopefully this won't result in years of spam. Good luck, and if you figure out the cause, please let me know. (I have about a dozen iMac G3s that I am gradually refurbishing.)

IMac won't recognize the files on a PC


In order for a Mac to open files generated on a PC, you must have a program capable of reading these files. The new version of Microsoft Office defaults to saving files in a new format which is not compatible with earlier versions. This can be rectified by 'Back Saving' files to an earlier version of Office in the 'Save' menu.
If you have files that you know can be opened with an application that is installed on the Mac, ctrl/click (right click) on the file and chose 'Open With' from the drop down menu. This will allow you to choose the application.

Here is the easiest solution if you're using the "mail" application on your mac.
Put the files you want to send on your desktop, then open the message that you are trying to send while still being able to see your desktop with the files you want to attach.. now drag those files onto the open message. that should work.
If you're not using mail.. message me back. also If this doesn't work, tell me what are the file extensions your using as well as file sizes and the email client you're using.
hope that helps
