|Subject: How Do I Set Up Size Limits in Outlook Express 5.x for Windows 95, 98, NT?
Many mail and news servers limit the size of messages that can be received and sent. Usually this limit is one megabyte (1 MB) per message, including all attached files. With Outlook Express, you can send large messages or files to mail and news servers that limit the size of messages they can receive by breaking the message into smaller ones. When the group of messages is received, the mail program recombines them into one message.
- On the TOOLS menu, click ACCOUNTS
- Click the MAIL tab, then select the Mail Account on which you wish to change the settings
- Click PROPERTIES
- On the ADVANCED tab, select the BREAK APART MESSAGES LARGER THAN X KB check box and then enter the maximum file size you can send
- Click APPLY
- Click OK
