    Paging any computer experts

    Is there any way to bypass the firewall of a company that allows you to email them pictures but blocks movies.

    Maybe a way to hide the movie in an attachment???

    that is controlled on the server side of the company. it will block specified attachments at the administrators request.

    you can try to Zip the file, and send it that way and hope the admin hasn't blocked .zip attachmants.

    Or possibly change the file extension on the movie to something like ".txt" and tell the person to change it back to the original when they recieve it.

    also might be a size issue
    I can control the size of attachments that go out of my company and that come in
    Exchange and Lotus Notes allow you to do that.
    I am guessing you are sending OUT.
    It might even be your company not theirs that is denying you the ability to send out.
    Mark is right, try Zipping the file first and or just change the extension. Their firewall can deny any MPG or MPEG or AVI or WMV ect files and their email server can as well.
    Last resort
    go get some free webspace and post it up and have person on other end pull it down
    OR last last resort there are File splitter freeware software programs that you can download and run to break up the file into small chunks and send it off one by one if the size thing is the issue.
    Have other person ask about file sizes allowed to come into email server.
