Windows Live Mail 2011 Essentials, Win 7 Pro

Good Morning seven Forums,

I tried to find a forum dedicated to just Windows Live Mail Essentials win 7 Pro, did not find one if it does exist.

My Question: Where in Options for Windows Live Mail Essentials 2011 can I remove the requirement that large emails messages will be divided into 256KB sizes. I checked each option tab and contents in options, Mail and other sections, could not find that options endabled. I want to disable it if possible. I get many emails with large powerpoints that I would like to share with otheres and family. In the cases where messages have been sent divided up never could be re-assembled at the recipient.

I don't think it's a limit in WLM.
In WLM 2012 I just sent and received an Email with a 2,886 KB .rtf attachment.
No problems and file was received as a single file in Outlook 2010 and WLM 2012.

You may want to check with the ISPs for the sending and receiving.

You can do a Google search for windows live mail file size limit
Here is one thread i found from MS about this.

Seven Forums,

Thanks for your reply, I continued to check WLM options and found right clicking my email address I am using choose properties, then click the advanced tab, near the bottom there is an option called "Split apart messages then in a slect box was 60KB with box on the line at the left side had a check mark to enable that function. I removed the check mark and was able to send a 9.91MB powerpoint to an email address. I have not tried to send that size to more than one email address, going to try it again.

I kept thinking the problem was caused by Windows 7. I have reeived many message from yahoo, google sites going to many addresses using BCC some of these messages were sent to a lot of peple when each item was 5 and 6 MB's.

By the way when I was haveing this proplem just after I clicked to send the message I would get a small warning message that this email addtess does not permit sending large messages, this one will be brocken up in 256KB sections, I have tried this in the past and allways got a message back that they were never re-assembled by the recipient.

Nice find and glad you got this sorted.

I just checked and found:
I don't have the "split" option for a Hotmail MAPI account (no advanced tab).
I do have the "split" option for a Gmail IMAP account.

So it seems like the email provider makes a difference, and maybe the account type!
