Hi there! My name is***** am a computer professional with over 15 years of experience with both Mac and Windows computers, phones, tablets, and printers. It would be my pleasure to assist you with this. There is a possibility that the documents are too large to be sent via email. Have you tried sending them one at a time to see if that helps? if that still doesn't work can you let me know the size of the file please?
Expert:  GeekGal replied 1 year ago.
I just checked and found that the largest piece of e-mail that an AOL member can receive from or send to the Internet is 25 Megabytes. If your two files together are more than 25 MB in size, try sending them separately. If each one is more than 25 mb then you will need to convert them to a pdf that will be smaller in size, or split into 2 separate.files. The 25 MB limit includes the message text, headers and the attachment combined. This size cannot be configured by the Member, or adjusted by the Postmaster Team.If the information that I have provided has helped, please kindly take a moment to rate my service. As an independent contractor for just answer, I do not receive credit for my answer and I am not compensated in any way without a rating of at least 3 stars.
