I'm trying to send my dad a video of the family reunion its compressed at 410mb. Ive sent larger emails than this to him. When i tried to send it a little window pops up that says "Not enough memory to send" WTF ? I have 768 mbs of RAM! How do i find out where my memory is going? I ran a spyware scan, clean. A virus scan, clean. I'm pissed.

edited to say i tried breaking it into smaller messages and that produced the same result.

It's probably more of a resources thing.


Reboot, close out everything that's not needed

Did you try restarting?

Closing a few programs?

You probably exceeded the virtual memory capacity. The system will use your HD as RAM when memory requirements exceed that of your actual RAM, this is called virtual memory. Your system probably exceeded the virtual memory, and you must adjust your virtual memory upward. The help section of your operating system will tell you how to accomplish this task.

Start
Control Panel

Advanced
Virtual memory: click change
Set it at about 1 Gig.

Edited to add:
Oh yah, this is for XP.

any other ideas?

Could this be related to SP2?

That's ridiculously huge for an email (which, by the way, is the least efficient way to send binary data). Is there any way you can FTP it to him or upload it somewhere? I can't imagine an email that large making it to its destination.

You can download WinRAR free and break it into manageable chunks. Once they all arrive, he can use WinRAR to very easily restore the file.

Well, I guess all that's left is to reformat the internet. I can do that for you from here.

change the photo format to a much more compressed format. if you have photoshop you can use image resizing and and reduce the resolution. You will lose quality, but if your dad wants to make 8x10's or something you could burn a CD and send it to him.

edited to add: just realized it was video. forget what I said
