  • Conversion of the attachment => increase size of the message (30-40%)

    Hello everybody,

    When I send a message with an attachment, the size of the message is
    increasing quite a lot

    The attachment is 281 kb, on my disk (there is no text in the message)
    On the recipient's mailbox, the message is 395 kb
    When the reciepient edits the message, the size falls down to 282 kb. (-- 30
    %)

    The problem is when the recipient receives "heavy" attachment, his mailbox
    is quickly full !

    I know that when we send mails through SMTP, the size of the message will
    vary according to the coding method used. When there are attachments, they
    are converted from ASCII to MIME or UUencode, and this conversion increase
    the size of 30 - 40 %.

    So the question is :

    How can I reduce this conversion increase percentage ?

    Outlook 2002 - Exchange 2003

    Thanks a lot !
