How big a message will your ISP allow? Most have a limit of 2 to 10 MB.
Some smaller. Do you have a Web site you could upload it to and then send
him a link?

Thanks! I didn't realize that. I use netzero.com as my ISP. I was hoping
just to send it through there.

Thanks for such a quick response

Hi. I see I'm not the only one with this problem. Me and my brother make
family videos for fun, and we can't send videos over a certain MB size. Why
is this? Just the other day I tried to email a video (size 702MB) and a
message came up saying "Not enough Memory." Can anyone help me with this?

Thanks in advance,
Nick.

All the mail box providers have limits.
The limits for attachments go between 2MB and 10MB for the ones I know.
They must prevent too large emails because they don't have unlimited storage
capacities.
A way to exchange videos is to upload them on a web site and send a link to
it by email.
Although uploading 720MB can take a while.
Good luck!

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.
