Windows 7: Problem sending email messages with attachments using Windows Mail

Problem sending email messages with attachments using Windows Mail

PC: HP G60 with Vista (32 bit)

I am supposed to be able to send email messages with attachments with a maximum 19 MB limit but I have been getting an error message "This message wasn't delivered because it's too large. The limit is 19 MB. This message is 25 MB." In fact the attachment capacity was 18 MB for that particular email message. I also received similar error messages for attachments on email messages that I sent with 16 and 17 MB.

The messages that did go through without any problem had atachments with 8, 10 and 11 MB.

Does anyone know of a solution to this problem. Otherwise, I will have to divide the attachments to lower the MB capacity in order for them to go through.

Thank you.
