Greetings all!
I took some audio/video clips (mpg) on my digital camera, of my ham shack & kitchen, but my Yahoo e-mail can't send it as attachment...

second question: I can send jpeg as attachment, but only a few, the rest jpeg are in red and it won't send the rest...
Using Windows XP in a Toshiba SatellitePro laptop.
Any & all info greatly appreciated.
Tnx e-Ham!

Generally it is your ISP or Email provider causing problem as they will place limits on size of attachments to a email. This is a pretty common problem. You are either hitting a size limit, or a time out limit (file taking too long to upload because of size) when email server will reset connection to keep it from being tied up too long on one task. You need to keep size of files smaller and you could  zip chunk them too. One way around this is a FTP file transfer from one machine to another or to "cloud" and then other party downloads from cloud.

For sending large files to people you generally need to use a specialised service - try looking at something like yousendit.com. I work as an audio mixer for television, and we often get composers sending large music files in this way,

Most email limit attachments to 10MB. For anything bigger, you nee to use something like Dropbox.
