Using my parents pc to send some photos for them. I get the message below.
Can I change this setting to allow the pictures to be sent? or is this set by the ISP?

"The settings for this account are to break apart large messages into smaller parts. Outlook express must break this message into parts of 256kb which is larger than the current setting, Do you still want to send the message?"

Hi it will still send the message with that setting,

It will put the message back together at the other end {the receiver }

I'm not sure what happened the last time I tried this but the recipient recieved 55 e-mails full of random code. What could cause that?

On the Tools menu, click Accounts.
On either the Mail or News tab, click Properties.
On the Advanced tab, select the Break apart messages larger than x KB check box and then enter the maximum file size the server will allow.

I think if you uncheck the "sending" box where it says break apart etc. it will do it's thing without telling you.

Thanks I've changed the setting as instructed and sent the e-mail away again. Hopefully all will be well this time.
