Sending speed is usually a function of the speed of your connection to the Internet.

Test by sending an email with a smaller attachment to yourself. I just sent a 607KB folder to myself, which took maybe twenty seconds. Based on that, 2MG shouldn't take much more than a minute. I have a slow 0.38Mbps up DSL, so I don't think Internet speed is your issue. Twenty minutes doesn't sound right at all.

I checked the outgoing Mail speed, visible in Mail Activity, bottom left of Mail window, which was staying mostly at 56KB/s. You should have a look at that.

Hi, I seem to have fixed this, first I downloaded Seamonkey (http://www.seamonkey-project.org) as a backup email client. I then just used time machine to go back to a point where it didn't run slowly. It can be a frustrating problem, but if all else fails Seamonkey works and there are several others with good reviews.
