Yes PlusNets limit is quite generous at the moment at 100 meg but I know that a friend of mine is limited to 5 meg as the amount that the servers e-mail buffer will hold. Which means that even if a were to send smaller files he has to make sure that he has downloaded them before I can send the next lot.

One way round this is to park your 20 meg file on your PlusNet webspace and then just email the url for your friend to navigate to and find the file.
He could then just download it from there.
