    Splitting large attachments (2002 (XP))

    I learned that my ISP (Adelphia) limits outgoing email to 3 Mb. They also sent me instructions on how to configure Outlook to automatically split large emails. Unfortunately, their instructions don't seem to apply to the version of Outlook I'm using. I have included their instruction below but does anyone know how I can do this in Outlook 2002? If it is not possible, is there a program that will do this easily and that will make it easy for the recipient to reassemble the attachment?

    Adelphia instructions:

    Instructions for Breaking apart mail messages:
    First bring up your mail program.

    1.) Click Tools on the file menu.
    2.) Click Accounts.
    3.) You will now see several Tabs, click the mail Tab.
    4.) To the right you will see several buttons, click the Properties button [2002 DOESN'T HAVE THIS].
    5.) Click the Advanced tab at the top.
    6.) Look to the bottom of the screen for Sending. You will see a box that is labeled Break apart messages larger than xxx (where xxx is a number). Click inside the box to put a check mark in it. Now to the right of that box you will see another box with up and down arrows.
    7.) Click the up arrow until you see 3000 displayed. Now click APPLY and then OK.

    outlook 2002 does not support breaking messages. Are they 3 megs zipped? if not, zip them.. if so, use a file transfer service and provide a url.

    You are lucky, most ISP's will support up to 1 meg only. <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>
