Is it possible to send a video file of 1.72MB via Outlook Express or Hotmail or is this too big ? Thanks.

Hotmail inbox is 200Mb so you should be able to send it through that,but if you zip it first it will make it smaller and also Hotmail is funny about what files it lents get send as attachments
so zipping it may be worhtwhile,as for OE that depends on you ISP and how big you mailbox is and the person who is going to recieve it.

depends on recipients mailbox size but to be safe you can send up to a gig if you click here

I did try 'yousendit' and the recipients got some trojan which caused them a lot of trouble.

I think that the next time I will zip it and try Hotmail. Thanks

A FREE Hotmail account can send and revieve attachments of up to 10megs a time, and the Inbox space has 250megs. So, the answer is YES, it is possible.
