How Can I Send Large Email Attachments In Outlook Express

How to send extra-large attachments using Outlook Express

Most of the mail services available on the web today have an upper limit on the size of emails that you can send and/or receive. For most of the services nowadays the limit is somewhere around 20 to 25MB (it is 20MB for Rediffmail and Yahoo!Mail, whereas it is 25MB for Gmail, and a mere 10MB for Hotmail).

Ten years ago, a 25MB attachment limit would have been a dream for most, but with increasing bandwidths and needs, this is not enough for today’s customers. So what do you do if you want to send a file across email which is larger (way larger) than 25MB? This article will show you a cute little trick that allows you to send such large files through Outlook Express.

Simply follow through the steps given below.

  1. Run Outlook Express.
  2. Navigate to Tools -> Accounts to open the Internet Accounts window.
  3. Go to the Main tab, and select the mail account that you use.
  4. Click on Properties.
  5. A dialog opens up, containing various options for configuring the mail account properties. Go to the Advanced tab in this dialog.
  6. Under the Sending heading, select the option for Break apart messages larger than, and use the arrow to set a suitable upper limit.
  7. Click on Apply.
  8. Click on OK.
  9. Exit the Internet Accounts window by clicking on Close.

After this, Outlook Express will break up all attachments that are larger than 20MB (if that is the limit you set) and send the mail in parts. The recipient will receive the email in parts and on downloading the parts; they will automatically combine to become a single file again.

Another option is to use some of the services available on the web – such as YouSendIt, Transfer Big Files, SendThisFile, and so on – that sends your extra-large file across the internet for you.

A brief look at Dictionary Apps for Linux

Even though it’s been almost a week since am OpenSUSE up to the point of writing this, I was still hunting for a dictionary/thesaurus for KDE. Also there are a ton of Firefox extensions for dictionary but I prefer a stand alone one that pops with a Ctr+Alt+W.

Also since I don’t have/want OpenOffice (I don’t find much use for it), I could not use the Thesaurus and Dictionary (Ooodi) it provides and Stardict is a no no (It was meant for Gnome).

I added a few of the repos from here (the backport and community repos) and jDictionary turned up in software management. Doesn’t gel with the KDE look, but it does the job, has a thesaurus too.

JaLingo :: OS independent dictionary application

I searched on Sourceforge and I found JaLingo. Very neat piece written in Java, running it is bloody simple. It supports quite a few types of dictionary, I chose to download some of the Sdictionary types.

In comparison to JaLingo, jDictionary allows one to download dictionaries (a limited set available though) within the program, which is very convenient. But Jalingo has a nicer interface and provides for a “drop zone” that you just drag and drop words into and it will show you the meaning and you have the wide variety of dictionary support formats.
