python program deleted

P: n/a
py users,

I developed a python program and used py2exe
to create the exe.

I zip the entire package and email it to my
clients.

Some clients get the zip file, unzip the
package and everything works fine.

And some clients get my email with an icon
attached which has the correct filename but
the size is 8k when it should be about 5 mb.

I've renamed the file without the zip ext.
and tried other renaming schemes without
success.

Has anyone had this experience? Any ideas on
how to solve this problem.

That would be an email problem, not a Python problem.

You need to:

(1) Check that you actually are attaching the 5MB file to the email like
you think you are.

(2) Check that your mail client is sending the email with attachment.

(3) Check that your mail server is accepting the email.

(4) Check that your mail server is sending the email.

(5) Check that the receiver's mail server is accepting the email.

(6) Check that the receiver's mail server is delivering the 5MB email to
the user's mailbox.

(7) Check that the receiver's mail client is displaying the attachment.
It's quite possible that the receiver's mail server is quarantining the
attachment. 5MB is a lot for email -- many mail servers will reject
emails larger than 10MB, although in my opinion setting the limit at 5MB
is being overly strict. Once you've confirmed that the attachment left
your mail server, you need to tell your clients to speak to their system
administrator.
