Too Big Attachment

Hello again, it's been a while. I have a problem with sending some e-mails. I am trying to send a video clip which is 1 minute long or 47,600 KBs. I keep getting a message saying it is too big and couldn't be sent. My question is, how do I increase the size I can send. I am sure I receive much bigger video clips some times.

Some e-mail providers have a limit that cannot be changed, but it's only for sending, not receiving. The reason you can receive e-mails with attachments bigger than that is the sender's e-mail provider doesn't have as strict of a limit.

As said earlier, email providers place strict rules on the size at which you can email files to contacts. The only other alternative which I would try is to upload to a cloud storage drive and then share it that way. For example if I had a gmail account then I would upload the file to Google Drive and then share the link to that file in the email

Hope This Helps,
Josh

47GB is too much for most providers. Upload to Youtube (maybe with a password) or Skydrive and send the link.

another way is to use dropbox or skydrive and paste the public link to the video and let the recipient click the link and download it.

edit: josh said it.
