Email Raw Files

  Tony W. 18:58 09 Dec 2009

I am trying to email three 10mb Raw files.

The email page says that they are in the process of being sent but after about ten minutes it stops and a message appears saying unable to send files.

Can anybody suggest a way that this can be done.

Are these attachments or are the pages themselves 10 mb? Are you sure it's not the recipient blocking the large files? If attachments you could compress them in to a zip file, what the files actually are will determine how much smaller they will become.

such large files.

It might work by trying to send 1 at a time.

Thank you.

They are attachments.

Sorry can you explain how I can compress them into a Zip file.

Another option is to use one of the several free sites that will allow you to send large files click here. G

Use a service such as "YouSendIt" click here to send the files. Some ISPs have an attachment limit as little as 3MB, so trying to send 10MB files is very likely to run into problems.

Thank you. It took a long time but I was eventually able as you suggested to successfully send one single raw file.

These 3 are just the beginning so it looks as though in future each one will have to emailed separately.

Right click on the file and select send to, then choose zipped folder from the menu that appears you will then have a chance to change the name of the folder. It's probably easier to make a folder for each file. Then attach the folders to a new email.
