    Ok; lately, i've been sending emails with attachment - pictures - that can approach but not exceed 10 megabytes... The email sends, then, minutes later, i get a return email from the system saying that there was a delivery failure... One person i was sending attachments to got the attachments despite my delivery failure receipt; another person did NOT receive the attachments... So what's the beef...? Anyone have any ideas...?

    LOL, okay, i can do that - i've never had a problem with complaining... :)

    But how do i get around this...? i don't want to start sending attachments from Yahoo, 'cause that's just gonna f_ck me up in the long run... How about outlook...? i have a different email address that i use through Outlook Express; anyone know what the limit might be with Outlook attachments per email...?

    Don't forget, the delivery failure COULD be generated by the receiving side, if it's not set up to accept large messages. Check near the bottom of the message, it should tell you the name of the server and the exact error code.

    Your email attachment limit is determined by your ISP, not your email program.

    LOL, how come you changed my quote from NNO to DES...?

    In any case, you might be right; i tried to send attachments from Outlook X to gmail and they bounced, telling me my server is crappy (ok, so that wasn't the technical term in the email)... i guess i'm gonna have to email gmail... Or is that gmail gmail...? :)

    NNO - you may have the pesky"tillman" virus.

    McAfee: tillman virus (tillman.dll) a.k.a wackymod.dll. Part of the simple virus family that include strains such as the lafunmod.exe and the recently exterminated lambobot.dll.

    characteristics:
    thrives on power and craves attention ​
    symptoms include:
    unexplained post edits, post moves and post merges. Occassionally it includes content scans for perceived relevance (also known as the "peters variant").​
    modus operandi:
    this virus is known to lay low for a few days and then rear its ugly head right out of the blue. It often likes to attack in the early morning hours and this virus can be picked up by posting on Ferrari chat. ​
    remedy:
    there seems to be no known cure* for this virus that burst upon the scene a few weeks ago. Please note, this is a low tech virus and is not dangerous to your operating system - it is however, an extreme pain in the AS$.​
    other notes:
    this virus is a distant cousin of the auraraptor virus (the benign "autobot" that automatically defends TVRFreak)​

    * note, in several instances the tillman virus seems to self implode.

    I have sent some pretty big attachements through outlook using my earthlink account. It has been a while so I don't remember the size.

    If the attachments are important I always use my earthlink account. I have had problems with web based e-mail and attachments.

    My earthlink account is an old dial up account I have had for years. I use charter cable for my web surfing. They never told me if I get an e-mail address through charter. Anyone know if they do? I would like to be able to send messages from outlook with cable.

    Actually, it's another screenname I have...I think I am up to five now. Can you and your dark, mysterious, screen-name counting, thread-merging moderator friend count that high?
