RE: steve-pressman
Thanks, but that is the info on the 20mb limit. As mentioned, I can send only up to 1 mb unhindered. 2mb and the file hangs in outbox for 10 minutes, and the receiver gets the file 3 to 5 times about 2 minutes apart. If it is 5mb, the file sits in outbox for hours, chewing through enormous bandwidth constantly sending and stopping any other internet browsing, until outlook is closed and restarted with network connection disabled so the file can be moved to trash.

No problem with the other two computers on network, still sending any size file using same ISP (unless DSL is tied up with the WIN7 Outlook 2010 computer still sending a silly 2mb file). This problem is mentioned in many help sites but no help is apparently there yet...

At least Musitech's problem went away finally.... maybe someday :)
