Default Using gmail

I have tried sending an email with a couple of small video attachments but it has been returned as undelivered for the reason shown below.


Could not be delivered because of

Server refused mail at MAIL FROM - 552 5.3.4 Message size exceeds fixed maximum message size

The two attachments were as I say, video clips, one of them is 6.9mb and the other is 4.3mb.

Is there anything else that I can do to get them to the person that I want to look at them.

Thank you.

You can try sending them one at a time.

If that doesn't work, then it's likely their server is refusing the message.

You can also try converting the video using a free converter like VLC. A quick YouTube search will quickly yield a HowTo. Mp4 is probably the smallest and most widely accepted format as well.

You could sign up for a free DropBox account, then upload the videos to DropBox and share them so that the person could then download them from DropBox.

Hopefully this video will help you to use VLC to convert the files otherwise I agree with Strollin, uploading the files DropBox, sharing them and is probably the best way to go.

OK folks, thanks for the replies. First off I am going to try sending them one at a time, if that doesn't work, i will try the DropBox method.

Thanks again.

I personally upload videos to Youtube and provide the links to stream them instead of giving the receptor a hard time having to download them in full
