Email Alert Message. TOO BIG

I have sent a particular email, probably about 10 times, with no problems.... I need to send it again, to another recipient... but I keep getting the following message....
Quote

Alert
The size of the message you are trying to send exceeds a temporary size limi of the server. The message was not sent; Try to reduce the message size or wait some time and try again, The server responede : ...temporary failure.
                                                              [  OK    ]

No.. it`s not O.K... 

can someone, please,  tell me what is happening... and how long must I wait for it  before I can send it again... 
For info.....  the message is rather long... all text... no attachments... and no multiple addressees.
(Using Thunderbird ).....

Without further detail around where that message is being generated, it's difficult to advise further. Have you tried sending the message via Webmail?

Re: Email Alert Message. TOO BIG

If it's just text, can't it be spread across two emails?

Re: Email Alert Message. TOO BIG

Hi Bob,
The message is generated, a few seconds after I click on "Send"... and the usual moving line box ( showing it being transmitted).. appears.. this will run for a while before, presumably, timing out... but the message remains....

@ForceE ... yes it could... BUT... as mentioned in my post... I have sent it many times previous to today.... with no problems.. so why should I have to chop it up... ( it is an instructional guide )..

Re: Email Alert Message. TOO BIG

Strange... I have just done a test send... with a slightly longer version... by sending it to my alternative address.. and it went, and arrived with no problem ... wonder if it was because it was a  "gmail" address....... @gmail.com.au to be precise...
