deleting files

by closet_blonde / August 16, 2011 1:47 AM PDT

Using O.E. 6, I've sent many pictures out through email. Now recieving the message
"exceeded the servers limit" Error 522.
When trying to delete from deleted box, a "NO" shows up, why?
Is it because the pictures may be in other files somewhere on the computer also? That's the only thing I could think of.
Of course all the pictures folder is full and I'd be able to delete from there also.
Any help is appreciated.
Thank You.

that message means that the mail server,

has a limit on the size of attachments that can be sent through it.
It is not necessarily the Mail server that you use, although it can be, it could be the mail server(s) of the person(s) to whom you are sending these pictures.

Not sure why you have a NO in the deleted box though.

Would it be ok if I delete the pictures I'm finished with?
Would it help free up space to rid the message I keep recieving?
I don't see where it would be a problem unless
they're somewhere else in the computer also.
Thank You for your response, it's greatly appreciated.

Mail Problem
by mrmacfixit Forum moderator / August 16, 2011 6:26 AM PDT
In reply to: Deleting

Attaching a picture to an email does not use any drive space.
however, when you send that email a copy of it, and its attachments, go into the Sent folder.
Now you have used more space.

Deleting from the Sent folder just moves the emails to the Deleted folder.

deleting from the Deleted folder removes the email and its attachment from the email database and frees up drive space.

How many pictures do you attach at one time?
What size, in MB are these pictures that you attach?

As of now, I have deleted the pictures from my O.E.6 sent file, then deleted the entire group of deleted files and still recieve:

The message could not be sent because its size exceeded the server's limit. You can use the option, located in Tools | Accounts | Properties | Advanced, to break messages into smaller parts.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
