I have written a couple of treatises which internet acquaintances have asked to see. However, Verizon evidently won't accept an email longer than around 100k; so anyone have a suggestion--Thanks most kindly

One way is to set up a website and post your treatises there. (Your Verizon subscription may have entitled you to free webspace that you do not even realise you have.) Or, for cheapness and simplicity, you could just start a blog somewhere like http://www.blogspot.com, and post them there. Or -- dare I suggest -- you could even send them in the regular mail, either on floppy disks/CDs or as printouts. (Shock, horror! :-)

According to their blurb. Verizon provides considerable volumes of email storage (2 GB) on all their packages, and I'd be surprised if they had a serious limit on individual email size. Most packages (other than free email addresses) that do restrict email size have restrictions at about 5, 10 or 20 MB (but accounts rarely restrict the size of outgoing mails).

It could, of course, be that the recipient's address has a size limit or that their mailbox is full.

You could try zipping the attachment (a practice that has become sadly less common as all but the technology-dispossessed in the back-of-beyond, such as myself, have broadband access). As Erik points out, you should have web space with your Verizon account (they say 10 MB of space with all DSL packages), and maybe they'll let you run an FTP site there as well. You'll have to ask them.

Phil: It took me the better part of a minute to catch on, but it was a good chuckle after all
