    Its just a sort 30 sec video clip I took using my digital camera. Comes up as MVI but maybe an AVI file. When trying to email it I get this error:



    One or more of the attachments (April 6, 2004 mvi004.AVI) are on
    the list of unacceptable attachments for this site and will not have
    been delivered.



    Thanks again for your help.

    Do you get the message on your computer, or does it come in the form of a "failed email" type of message?

    My first instinct says the email server you are sending it to is programmed not to allow movie files. Many of my friends have that where they work.

    I get the failed email message. We have sent numerous email videos to the same email before.

    The email is from something called MailScanner

    Thanks again.

    It may be something that's been setup since the last time you were able to send a video successfully. You can try using a program like winrar or winzip to create an archive and send that.

    Maybe ask the person you are sending the emails to. They may have added some network security features, and now cannot receive video files.

    Zipping may work. I know there's nothing I can do to get past one of my friends' email scanners though.
