    And the Maximum may also be with the recipient's ISP. Or in other words, on both ends.

    outlook.com wont send a file with 4 photo's it says its exceeds the maixium limit which is 20mb. however when I look at the emails that I'm trying to send they are only 16.8mb.... can someone tell me how to fix this
    The problem here is that you cannot send binary files directly through email. They must be "encoded", typically in a format called Base64. This is done automatically by your email program. The issue here is that encoding is not a 1:1 correlation, but rather closer to a 1:1.5 correlation. That means any binary file you send in email is automatically 1.5x larger than the actual file on disk.

    You can read more about it here:

    Why are emailed attachments larger than the original file?
