    I have no idea what you are talking about. This is an English language forum.

    I don't believe you can, if you mean 'How can I get Red5 to increase my permitted quota?' Possible solutions are to crop the picture, reduce the quality of the picture (fewer pixels -> a smaller file), or compress the doc file (put it in a WinZIP archive file). You can download a demo version of WinZIP from WinZip.FreeDownloadPage.com .

    A picture shouldn't be a .doc file. And 10 mb is one heck of a document.

    The space allocated is the same for everyone. I would not want a 10Mb document attached to a discussion anyway.

    As Bob suggested, you could try compressing it.

    If the problem is the image, zipping it won't help: the commonest formats (GIF, JPEG and TIFF) are already compressed, and so won't compress any further.

    Why do you need to attach a Word document with such a large picture in it?

    They could use a third-party host such as 'Picasa Web Albums' (from Picasa) or Flickr (at http://www.flickr.com/).

    ...
    Is BMP? - a lot of people still use that. And if the pic is included in a doc file (as the origijnal post suggested) zipping it (the doc file) would make a small difference - unlikely to be significant, I grant. But the way Word wastes space, I thought it might be worth trying.
