At first this would look like a problem with your ISP's mail server, but If 
hotmail is having 
the same problem you might try a diffrent browser.. I believe you can migrate 
your email 
over to mozilla if you want to give that a try.. Check your email settings and 
make shure your 
client isint trying to break the 1 file into multiple smaller files...

Try copy and 
pasting the contents of XF86config into an email and see if its just having 
problems with 
attachments... If all else fails you can try out fetchmail and a console mail 
client like 

It may be a much simpler problem like not enough free space in /tmp or 
wherever it cache's the message before sending.. 

If this gets you no-where, maby someone 
else listning has an idea.. (I dont use netscape)
