    Well, i don't think gmail wants us to send 100+ meg files, or maybe, they do, since just about the only unlimited message size server is gmail

    One of the joys of using a free beta system. ;)

    By the way, I still can't get in.

    I was under the impression that there was a 10mb attachment limit. Ill have to test this.

    Hapuna- I know they have been doing server work recently. I lost my server for about a day a few weeks ago, and contacted them. They said they were doing upgrades. Thats probibly why you cant get in. It should be up soon.



    *** test confirmed, my gmail does not allow files larger then 10mb. Must have been a fluke.

    hmmm, guess when they changed the server, they did that, because i still have the messages in my other gmail accout, and those files came through fine

    Yep. There's already another thread running on this. I tried this online drive and it works fine. Good tool.
