When sending e-mail with an attachment, you may be disconnected from your Internet service provider (ISP).
Your message and attachment may exceed the allowable message size on the ISP server.
Contact your ISP to see if another server is available which will handle your message and attachment.
Some ISP companies provide two Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) addresses, one for most messages and a secondary one for handling larger attachments. Many ISPs will automatically switch between these servers based on need. If yours does not switch automatically or will not allow you to connect to the secondary server on a default basis, you may need to set up a second profile to address the secondary server for sending larger messages.
