It would be a slow job, as your upload speed is nothing like as fast as your download whatever that is. best way would be create a CD or DVD and send by Snail Mail

The max attachment size is different for different ISP's or webmail.

That said Google is one of the largest and that is only 20MB.

Thanks for that, would compressing the movie/video clip help?

I regularly receive WMV files in e-mails - few are more than five or six MB, yet last quite some time when viewed.
