      File attachment limits?

      Anyone know what skymail's attachment limit is? I just tried to send a zip file (36kb) and it wouldn't send, said it exceeded limit
      If this exceeds limit then thats ridiculous!

      Re: File attachment limits?

      Can you post the exact error message. Are you sure it said you had exceeded your limit?

      Sometimes Zip files are disallowed if they have executables in them.

      The gmail limit is 10mb, I imagine that the sky version is identical.

      How are you trying to send the attachmnet via Skoogle or via your mail client. If it is the former then if you can try sending via a mail client as I have sent a few files with a combinded total of about 50mb without any problems.

      36kb is tiny so I would have thought the site must be playing up if you are sending it this way. Have you tried sending it not zipped up ?

      Sorry I'm late getting back with this. I have just installed windows live mail and I was sending it through that via my skymail or skoogle as you call it lol.
      Anyway I don't know what was wrong but the second time I tried it, it went through. It was a rar file containing documents.

      Thanks anyway for your advice
