    Re: The message could not be sent. There is not enough memory-

    Most email providers have a limit of 10 MB, Gmail has a 20 MB limit.
    Even most big file hosting sites have a 100 MB limit.

    Re: The message could not be sent. There is not enough memory-

    Ask your email provider what their size limit is for outgoing messages.
    This limit is usually tighter than any limit Windows Mail has, and is
    often around 10 MB. The encoding process expands the attachment
    as it adds it to the message, often around 30%.

    Also, problems caused by antivirus programs are often incorrectly
    reported, for example claiming there is not enough memory. What
    if any antivirus programs do you have on that machine, and have
    you ever had a Norton or McAfee antivirus program on that
    machine?

    Re: The message could not be sent. There is not enough memory-

    Most email servers have a limit of 2 to 10 MB file size, Gmail has a 20 MB
    limit. It's not a Windows Mail limit.
    If you want to send a large file, you can't use email.
    Your options are:
    1. Use a p2p program, like ICQ or Skype
    2. Use ftp if you have online space somewhere
    3. Upload to a file sharing site, like http://www.thelinkup.com/ (was
    MediaMax)

    Only people who describe their problems clearly, and include complete
    copies of any error messages they get, usually get useful answers.

    I don't know what you are using to view this newsgroup, but
    it is obviously not suitable. Newsgroups should be viewed
    with a newsreader such as the one in Windows Mail.

    RE: The message could not be sent. There is not enough memory-

    I just had the same problem when trying to mail a 468 MB file via Windows
    Mail on Vista 64 Business with 2 GB RAM.
    First, this has nothing to do with any restrictions of any ISP! It never
    gets this far as to send anything!

    When I press the send button, the message window will not go away to start
    sending. Windows Mail obviously first tries to read the whole file into
    memory and then encode it. Actually it does so bad at this, that it allocates
    1,5 GB of memory and seems to try to get even more. With Base-64 encoding the
    file should get no larger than 624 MB. Still it wouldn't make any sense to
    load the file into memory, it should just be streamed in small blocks to the
    mail server!
    Windows will try to get more memory by moving as much as possible to the
    page file but eventually gives up. Then Windows Mail shows this error message.
    Of course it takes quite some time until Windows gives up, and Windows is
    very unresponsive during this time (even on a quad core CPU).

    So I consider this issue to be a bug in Windows Mail. There is really no
    need to keep the attachment in memory. It just has to make sure, nobody is
    allowed to write to the file, while sending it.

    Re: The message could not be sent. There is not enough memory-

    Why do you want Windows Mail to be able to try to send messages so
    large that most email providers will reject them? A typical limit is
    10 MB per message.

    If you want Windows Mail to at least try to break it up into pieces,
    click on Tools, then Accounts, then your email account, then
    Properties, then Advanced. If there is no checkmark in the box
    before Break apart messages larger than, click on this box, then
    Apply; then adjust the allowed size until it is close to your email
    provider's limit, but not quite that high, then click Apply again.
    Click on OK, then Close.

    Note that whoever you're trying to send the video to may have an
    even lower limit on the size of incoming messages.

    Also note that when Windows Mail complains about not having
    enough memory, the actual problem is often interference from an
    antivirus program, which Windows Mail seldom seems to be able
    to report correctly. What if any antivirus programs do you have, and
    have you ever had a Norton or McAfee antivirus program on that
    computer, even one of the free trial versions that often come already
    installed on new computers?

    You could always try uploading the video to a web site meant for
    storing videos, then email a much shorter message saying how to
    download it from that site.

    Re: The message could not be sent. There is not enough memory-

    Email was never meant for sending files that large.
    Even if you can find a mail client that would not choke on the initial
    encoding process, it would be refused by the outgoing mail server.
    So, your concern is of academic interest only.
