Default Quicktime Movie/How to email

I'm just starting to try using the movie mode on my C-2100 UZI and don't know how to email the large file. (5329K) Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

I have a couple of programs that will let you break up the file into smaller sizes and put them back together on the other end. A 6mb file is to large for most mail systems to handle and will take forever to download.

I suggest you burn your movie to CD and mail it.

Most ISPs will not handle (either sending or
receiving) a file that size.

Alternatively, if you have access to ftp site
you could place it there for others to download.

E-mailing large file attachments can be a way to lose friends and infuriate people, so be careful! If your recipient doesn't have a high-speed internet connection, they may be unwilling (or unable) to receive file attachments as large as 1MB or greater! In fact, a future ex-friend of mine just sent me a 3MB video clip last week, and it took me the better part of an hour to receive my mail! Until I get DSL, I've had to instruct a few of my buddies not to send me any attachments greater than 500K or so.
