Why are my e-mail attachments taking so long to upload?

  1. If your e-mail attachments are uploading slowly, the files you're trying to send may be too big for the e-mail server to handle effectively. It can also slow down the process if you try to attach multiple files at once. Several programs, including WinZip and Stuffit, can alleviate some of these uploading woes by compressing larger files into a smaller form, or even archiving multiple files together into a single package, making the data load much easier to send. If the file is still taking too long to send or upload, it may simply be too big to send via e-mail; you may want to seek out alternative means of delivering it in this case.
