    I get a server timed out message any time I try to send an email with a photo attached. It's large but not that large. 123 KB.

    I've received messages bigger than that with no problem.

    Any ideas?

    What email program are you using?

    In Outlook and Outlook Express, under the account properties there is a setting to increase the time before it reports a server timeout. Sometimes it will be set very short, and setting it longer will give the account more time to upload the program to the email server before it times out.
