Even though you are not using squirrelmail, check out the advice on
this page:

You **SHOULD** be able to get an attachment of between 1 and 2 gig.

There are mail servers that silently drop such large attachments. That
is to say, no report is sent to sender or recipient about the deleted

That's true, of course, but I felt that the OP should be made aware that
sending such large attachments over the internet, as opposed to their
own LAN, is a gamble.
