Cannot send mail, out of memory

M

MikeFinland

Hi, this rather annoying thing happened today. I had sent a mail OK to a guy,
and after that, when I try to send, I receive a message saying that the
message cannot be sent, there is not enough memory. No issue codes or
anything else.

I have Win Vista Home Premium, F Secure 2010 and Windows Mail. Worked OK
until today, now I cannot send anything.

Also, for some time, when trying to open an online music channel in Media
Player, the same thing happens, there is not enough memory. But when I click
on the channels media player, it works. Also an annoying thing.

Have 4GB or memory on a laptop less than 3 months old.

Does this happen with any new message you try to send?
That mail account may have become corrupted. Delete that account,
restart Windows Mail, then recreate the account. If no improvement,
I suggest doing a trial uninstall of your antivirus, reboot, than try
sending again. If still no improvement, upgrade to Windows Live Mail:

I tried to send a small PDF, not large at all. For some strange reason even
large PDF-files have worked before. When I sent only a photo some hours ago
it worked fine. Will check again and see if it works now.

No, if I send a small PDF it refuses to be sent. If I send a small photo,
JPEG, it works fine. Strange. Could be some with the PDF, I guess. Not sure.
Will try again.

Have heard a lot from MS support that F Secure can be causing a lot. Could
be this also, have no idea. Will try without it also.

So the problem only happens when you send a PDF attachment?
Sounds like your antivirus is trying to scan the outgoing email.
Email scanning in any antivirus should be disabled, for reasons
explained here:
http://thundercloud.net/infoave/tutorials/email-scanning/index.htm

If no improvement after disabling email scanning, consider upgrading
to Windows Live Mail, because it is less prone to suffering bad effects
from intrusive antivirus programs:

The first thing would be to disable the F Secure and see if that fixes the
issue. Many 3rd party programs cause troubles for WinMail users. See also
point 3 here: www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#3
