This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

why email in chunks? Get gmail and send all at once? also this is not programming related... – Jakub Dec 17 '10 at 19:11
A quick example would be very helpful to me as well ;) – styu Dec 17 '10 at 19:12
WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT??? – s3v3n Dec 17 '10 at 19:17
A combination of mysqldump + tar + gzip + split + mail should do the trick. Implementation is left as an exercise to the reader. – Marc B Dec 17 '10 at 19:20
How IS IT programming related? At what point are you looking for source code / programming logic, etc. You clearly want server administration help, which IS NOT programming, but administration, or rather trying to make a backup. – Jakub Dec 17 '10 at 19:24

There is a tool to do what you want : Website 2 Backup. It is an automatic website files and database backup manager. Archives are encrypted and splitted. You can store on Email, FTP, or locally. Double backup, integrated restoration, and many more.
