[thechat] Fubar'd connections: help?

Hi guys.

Hate to use this list as tech support, but I've Googled, RTFM, and tried 
all the obvious solutions to these problems, and it hasn't helped.

As you may recall, I offered to send my restaurant menu to anyone who 
wanted it. So I fired up Eudora, attached the file and sent it to those who 
asked. But my mail goes maybe 20% and then stops. A minute later, Eudora 
tells me "Error writing to network. Cause: connection reset by remote side 
(10054)". There's no problem sending a mail without attachments (as you can 
see, this mail got there) and it's not a problem with a specific file 
either. I don't think it's my ISP mail server because I tried sending it 
through my madmanweb.com mail server and the same thing happened.

So I thought I'd FTP it instead. But that too doesn't work properly. While 
FTP'ing the file, it stops at "26.5% of 34KB" and then hangs. That too is 
not a problem with one server; it happens with three servers I tried to FTP to.

I'm running Windows XP Pro.

Any ideas?
