Gmail - Unable to send attachments

I am experiencing problems sending attachments using Gmail. Basically it won’t send them. I don’t get an error message, it just tries to send and gets stuck. I am not sending forbidden files such as exe, and they are not too large.

I have tried the following solutions.

1. Using Gmail in IE and Firefox.
2. I use Avast to scan outgoing messages and I’ve turned off the virus scanner.
3. Sending different sized emails. I can send any attachment up to about 100kb.
4. I can send attachments via my other web based email (Yahoo)

None of the above has made any difference. Any ideas??

How long do you leave Gmail when you send the e-mail with attachments? Maybe you haven't left it long enough so the file(s) can be uploaded?

Waited 19 mins to send a 192kb file, still waiting.

I have solved the problem of how to send attachments using Gmail.

If I use the Gmail address click here instead of click here (the only difference is the 's' after http) then it sends attachments ok. How weird.
