    I am trying to send a wmv file through e-mail to a friend but it tells me the file is to big it exceeds the global size limit?? (31457280 bytes of the server) and asks me to reduce the size of the file and try again. Question is how do i reduce the file? have looked on google but its all a bit confusing and dont want to do the wrong thing and f*@k it up. Thanks for any input...

    make a copy of it first before you try anything.

    have you tried something like winzip to compress the file?

    Might not help you much, but I usually use winrar to rar the file instead of zipping. It compresses it a little more.

    Splitting the file is the classic way of dealing with this problem - but it does require a modicum of ability at the far end when it comes to re-assembly. This technoque is used extensively on the binary newsgroups to get round the article size limits.

    The other way is to find an online 'storage' facility - but the free ones tend to be *very* slow and overloaded.
