forwarding attachment over 1 mb size limit of server

Roadrunner advises maximum size for sending attachment is 1 mb.

However, a friend with Roadrunner sent the 1.5mb Powerpoint attachment to me, and I opened it O.K.

The people I forward it to have Powerpoint installed.

But when I forward it, the receivers get it in 2 or 3 seperate e-mails that can not be opened.

Tried Sending A 'New' Message With Attachment?
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / March 11, 2007 2:32 PM PDT

..instead of "forwarding" it?

Remember also, sometimes a larger file can be "received" when it can't be "sent". Strange, but I've seen some ISP's that let a larger file in than can be sent out.

Hope this helps.

I know AOL does not allow forwarding their e-mail unless it is to an AOL user.
But, I'm stuck as to why my friend with Roadrunner was able to forward it to me. Perhaps an e-mail setting I'm not aware of ?

I'm not familiar with road runner.Do you have road runner internet and/or road runner e-mail?

I found this,though it may not apply too you.

tools/ accounts/select the account/ properties/ advanced
There should be a slider to extend server time outs and to break apart large emails.

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?
