My Email is too Large

I am trying to create an internal email to send to about 3000 in my company. I really like using graphics but am finding it hard to get the file size down. The email without graphics is 5kb, the picture size is 5kb (I have used Optimiser and compressed the file) - but the combined total is 198kb (we have a 50kb limit at work). Does anyone know what the problem is and how I can overcome it?

Adjusted points to 500
My guess is that Notes doesn't adhere to  the 'Optimiser' format and is automatically readjusting the graphic to a supported file format.

However ... why not create your document in a database on the server and send a doclink to your recipient list?  This would save space ... as well as your precious time.

The 198Kb... Is that the size that the recipient sees or is that the size of the draft?
Is there any way to split the attachment into parts ?

Nothing seemed to work until I opened the picture in explorer and then copied the opened version onto my email. This created a very bad copy of my picture but cut the size down to 22kb. Very odd!
Thanks for your help though.
