    what type of problems?
    what email software fo you use?
    what type of internet connection?
    how big is the file?

    depends - the file could be too big for your email or isp

    more info would help

    (and will they be able to view it?, do they have corel10 or is there a corel10 presentation viewer they need?)

    Thanks for returning my email. Okay I have Explorer for the internet. I have high speed edition for a surver the file we are trying to send is about 49.8 mb. And Im not sure if the person we are sending this file to has corel10 or needs the explorer to review the slide. Would it be better if we send half of the file and then the other half later. Would that make a difference.

    Do you have anything like Winzip so you could zip the file. 49mb is too big to send as an attachment with email.
    What you could do is open an account with Yahoo and they give you a Briefcase with 30mb of storage space, your relatives can download the slides from there after you give them access to it.

    There's absolutely no way you're going to be able to e-mail that file to anyone. Nearly every ISP or e-mail provider has a limit on attachment size, and that limit is usually a maximum of 5MB, which is still huge.

    If you managed to compress it to 30MB to fit into Yahoo! Briefcase, it will take your friends who have a dial-up connection, hours to download it.

    If you manage to upload it somewhere, and your friends manage to download it, they won't be able to view it unless they have Corel 10 (or whatever you used to create it).

    Thanks for all the replies. Im wondering if we can email the file zip it into thirds. Would we still have a problem emailing this. Or would it be best just to print, scan, and send as an attachment instead of having to go through corel10.

    thanks

    oooh, looks like everyone straightened you out C ! :)

    50Mb file definitely too big
    even a max ISP size 3 - 5 mb file is a lot of download time on a dial up modem (cable or dsl like HSE is no biggy)

    even zipped into several parts may be too big - some graphic formats don't compress much

    either save each slide as a separate file - still pretty big files!
    or
    can you save each slide in a different (smaller format)?

    this is coreldraw10 right?
    if so they have a publish to pdf feature and a publish to html feature
    either one will likely be smaller in size and both formats are pretty universal

    with the html you can get yahoo geocities or one of the other freebie sites and publish it as a webpage, then just send out the url so people can see it

    it's a powerful program, but there's likely a few other easier ways to distribute it than in it's original form

    try the help file or even the unopened manual for more ideas

    if it's not coreldraw10 - identify the exact program name, and we'll come up with more
