    Is it possible to send a large WMV file as an attachment? Let's say 50MB or even 100 MB? If so, how? One of my email servers only allows 20MB and another allows more but I'm not sure of the limit.

    Even if your email provider will let you send an email that big it's unlikely that the recipient will be able to receive an email that large. The two best things to try are compressing the files before sending them, or uploading them to a web site and letting the recipients download the large files with their web browsers. For more information on compressing files please see this article:

    If your files are still too big you can send them using this file sharing over email program.
