why not open a yahoo account and then send it. Yahoo is free, unlimited storeage and works great. I quit using Outlook over 10 years ago because it was PC specific. Just because you change an ISP does not mean that you have to use their e-mail addy on Outlook.

Yaho is web based and means you never have to change that address when changing ISP's.

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers

Thanks for the Yahgoo suggestion but as this problem has only just started and up to now I have been satisfied with outlook express I will try and resolve this present trouble. I have another PC incidentally on the same system and this other model works fine, so it may be something that just applies to the latest machine, in other words a setup problem. Thanks again for your answer. gGreg Hicken.

Are you referring to Outlook 2007? The last version of Windows that had Outlook Express was XP.

Do other emails forward to friends?

My query was about Microsoft Office Outlook 2007, don't know if that alters the answers to my problem rich1949, and yes, all other mails go out and come in fine, it is just forwarding the video attachments that are a problem, even they arrive o.k and I have no problem reading or viewing them.

How big are they? Some servers put a limit on upload size, such as 10M per email which shakes out (with overheads) to about 7M max per attachment.

Better add that I'm in the UK, so the above might be a UK thing only.

We all live on a ball.
