Question

E-mail memory

I am trying to send an e-mail with a 159 MB Video, and when I click send, I get this message,
The message could not be sent.
There is not enough memory.

How can I rectify this?

There are limits to how big an email can be.

Answer
Generally speaking...

... You should limit email attachments to 5MB or less. Many email systems will allow neither sending nor receipt of an email message larger than 5MB.

Why can others

I get heaps of videos up to double what I am trying to send.
My question is, "Why can others do it, and not me"?

most likely

you are not getting the video but a link to the video.

Answer
Well typically the error not enough memory

means there is something on your PC causing the issue. If you using Outlook there is a file called outlook.dbx that needs to be deleted. Once that file is deleted a new one will be created. Typically if the attachment is too big you will get the message file size too big or something similar.
