    I wonder why my Windows updater didn't update to SP4 already?

    Outlook Express was built for WinXP 32 bit. The 2 gig limitation came with the 32bitness. Back in those days, sending a 320x240 image was a big deal and the largest hardrive around as 250MB.

    Right. That is why OE was never programmed to handle stuff of that size. Just like "nobody will ever need more than 640K".
