Why Can’t People Receive Emails I Send With Attachments?

The most common reason people are unable to receive your emails with attachments is size limits set by the ISP (internet service provider)

First, check with your own ISP (i.e. AOL) for size limits on attachments. Then check with the ISP of the person to whom you are sending the attached file (i.e. Yahoo!). Some ISP’s are putting in attachment receiving limits of 2MB.

If the problem is on your end you can set up a Gmail account; they have much larger size limits on attachments. Or you can upload the file to a website that allows uploading, like www.yousendit.com, then send the link to the person to whom you are emailing.
