ASPMail - limit on attachment size?

I hope someone here has some expertise with ASPMail.

I have a MS Access client using VBA / ASPMail to generate Excel files and send them via ASPMail.

This works fine, exept for one particular .XLS file.

The file is quite large, and I wonder if that is a factor.

The file is 1.56 MB (1,638,400 bytes)

The error I get is

   : Response : "[10053] Software caused connection abort" : String

which I think is actually a WinSock error that ASPMail is getting and handing-off to me.

Here is the only info I could find on this:


What will cause Winsock Error 10054 : "Connection reset by peer"?

Winsock Error 10053 : "Software caused connection abort"

 Known causes are:

Loss of connection to the remote socket

A connection can reset due to a timeout or a reboot of the remote system.

A duplicate IP address on your network

A misconfigured firewall or proxy server

A firewall or proxy server may block the connection.

Lost of packets or an aborted transfer

If the remote server stops responding, or if too many packets are dropped, or if the remote system aborts a transfer, it can cause a 10054 error.

We had to increase the outgoing attachment size limit on the SMTP Server.

I am going to request either a delete or PAQ on this.
