Sending Folders In OE 6

Postby c327 » Thu Mar 21, 2013 1:12 am

I know OE6 is ancient but I like it and use it often.

My question is:

I have a folder that contains 5 or 6 files. Can I send the folder? and if so is there a best way to send it?

Thanks...............

As far as I know you have to compress and send. Something like Winzip or WinRAR

Yes I had already tried that in Windows XP Pro and it works but the total folder file size was reduced only very slightly.

so, you're question is more around how to send something like that in as small of a package as possible?

those types of files don't have much compression available to them.

Yes, thats correct. I see where I worded the original post incorrectly.

Trying to reduce the time in which to send a group of files located in a folder, some of which are photo's.

Ctrl-A, right-click, add to zip. right-click zip-file, send to email recipient.
5 steps.

That is the way I did it pretty much (didn't use ctl A) but the folder contents compression (zipped) was only slightly less.

7.21mb un compressed
6.92mb compressed (zipped)

Is OE 6 limited to a maximum total size that can be sent via email?

10MB message and attatchment.. BUT that number may be a bit off. No truely reliable info to be had for OE6. The limit could be from your ISP as well..

There should be a tab in the settings to attempt to adjust the limit.. Are you getting an actual error or is it just not sending?

I remember seeing an issue with mime attachments being decompressed before sending or grow in size when being encoded... But OE6... that's a loong time ago... let me dig a bit...

No, not having a problem sending what I want to send. No error message. Just noticed that it takes a little longer than what I would like (3.0 DSL) and that I also noticed the slight difference in file size between the two ways, Zipped and not Zipped.

OK so there may be something to the 10mb max size, be it Windows, OE6 or my I.P.
