Most SMTP servers are configured not to accept attachments bigger than
10 or 15MB. In general, you should never send emails with >5MB
attachments. Not because it is not possible, but because it is
unreliable, and the solution is never in your hand. The solution depends
on the SMTP server configuration, and in most cases you don't have
access to the computers holding the final destination of the emails.
If you still don't want to accept this suggestion, then go ahead! Write
a program, send out 100MB emails, and you will see for yourself that it
just doesn't work.
