So I got home, created a bunch of attachments and sent them to my Gmail account - no issues
So I grabbed the same attachments and sent them to my mothers email address at work - no issues
Same attachments again to my own email address - no issues

Then I grabbed the same file from this morning and sent it to my own email address - no issues

Grrr, I hate issues like this

Move along, nothing to see here
