Subscriber Art Root wrote to ask about a problem he was having with Outlook Express breaking outbound videos into smaller pieces. Since these are causing problems to his recipients, he wants to know how to make it stop:
Thanx 4ur newslttr. Luv it. Q- Outlook Express breaks up messages (videos) larger than 128 kb on my Dell Inspiron 9400. How can I reset the config?
I wrote back to Art to tell him that, indeed, this is a configuration setting in Outlook Express. If you’ve accidentally turned this feature on, or if you intend to turn it on, you can find it by following these steps.
First, open Outlook Express. Then, from the main Outlook Express window (not from a separate windows with an individual message), click on Tools.
When you click on Tools, OE will open a dropdown menu for all the Tools choices.
Click on Accounts…
Now, you need to select the account that you want to change. This would be the one for your email address.
Then, click the Propeties button so you can change the configuration options that are specific to that account.
This will open the Properties dialog box for that account.
Click on the Advanced tab, then Uncheck the "Break apart messages larger than" checkbox.
Click Apply to make the change take place and click OK to close the dialog box.
While many programs will let you just click the OK button at that point, and will automatically apply the changes you made, not all programs will. That’s why I take the time to click the Apply button and then the OK button.
Now, Outlook Express will stop breaking your large out-going emails into small pieces.
