Can I email myself a full length movie?

Is it possible to email myself a full-length movie or video? That way, I wouldn’t have to move my external drive to my other PC physically. One of my PCs is the desktop running only Windows Vista. It’s a 32-bit PC. My other PC is a laptop with Windows 7 and it’s a 64-bit PC. If I can email my movies to myself, I won’t have to burn them on my desktop. I can open the email and copy and paste them to my external drive on my laptop PC and burn them to a disk from there. My email program is Microsoft Outlook 2010 and I don’t know if it has any length restrictions on size or content, which impedes my plan.

No, Microsoft Outlook 2010 is not going to have size restrictions on what you send. But there are two reasons why this plan will not work.

First, your ISP almost certainly has a limitation on the size of an email that you can send. Movies and full-length videos are huge and ISPs don’t like it when you email files that big. So, they’re probably not going to let you do it.

Second, you’re not going to want to do it that way anyway because what you’re talking about is using email, and that means uploading it (all) to your email provide, and then downloading it (all) to your other machine. Even on a fast internet connection that’ll take a lot of time.

There are better ways.
