    Hello,

    I have Windows XP Media Center Edition and use Outlook Express. I have been trying to send a file with a video clip that is 42MB, but it won't go through. I keep getting the following error message:

    Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity. Subject '',

    then my account information, and then

    Response: '451 timeout (#4.4.4)', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 451, Error Number: 0x800CCC0F


    I have sent video clips before without any problem, for example funny commercial clips that others have sent me. This is a short video clip that a friend shot from his digital camera and put on a CD that I then saved on my hard drive. It plays fine on my computer so I can't figure out why I can't send it as an attachment on the e-mail. Can anyone help, hopefully with step by step instructions? Thanks in advance.

    That's a pretty big clip. Most mail servers have a limit of 1-3 megs. What's the largest you have sent before?

    The limit has to be high on both ends.

    Your question made me go check the size of the other video clips and I found that even the ones that were much longer in time, were way smaller in MB's. Is there any way I can reduce the size of the video clip, and why would it be so much larger than other clips that are much longer in time?

    Poor encoding, lack of compression, large window size---some files are way bigger than they need to be.

    You could try your hand at re-encoding the file into a different format with differing compression (or window dimensions).

    Or, you could chop it up and send the pieces. Just have those on the other end put all the pieces in one folder and run that .bat file that is created and all the parts will be put back together.
