If the file is too big to be e-mailed through Yahoo (I believe they cap attachments at 10MB) then you will need to do one of three things:

1. Compress the video file so that it is no longer larger than Yahoo permits
2. Use a different e-mail provider who allows large attachments.
3. Use a file sharing service such as DropBox or Box.net to save the file, and then send the link to the file in your e-mail.

Email is not designed to send large files. Each domain has its own mail size limits.

For large files I suggest you use yousendit Lite.

If you do use yousendit, email the receipient first to let him/her know he/she will be getting a notification from yousendit that the file is available for download. That will let the receipient know it is not spam.
