E-Mail attachments

This is a problem I've not met before. Attempting to send an e-mail with an attachment approx 3.0MB in size but it seems to time out with the messsage ' Server not responding, do you want to wait a further 60 secs'. this happens toward the end of the send altho' it appears to be sending and receiving it refuses to finish sending which is when I get the 'not responding' message. Sending an e-mail without attachment is OK. My own thoughts are that it might be because the attachment contains an exe. extension that it is being blocked by a firewall on the server. I'm with Freeserve at the moment on a 56Kb modem. Anybody got any thoughts on the problem.

Thanks for the replys. I suspect the size limit might be a factor altho' Ive sent pictures larger than this. I've tried compressing and zipping which brought it down from 4 to 2.8MB but still no success in sending. Guess I'll just have to put it on a CD-RW.

I've sent 5MB files with freeserve.

Thanks for the input. Even if it doesn't work I'll have learned something. :-))

i tried to send a friend a 4mb zipped file not so long ago using outlook express.ticked the box to break apart files larger than ** (60kb i think was default) and they ended up getting 58 emails with just nonsense code as content.
