When I try sending ether to another account, I keep getting the message "Exceeds block gas limit".
I changed the gas amount from 5,000 to 100,000 but nothing else happened. Why does the transaction exceed the block gas limit? How can I fix that?

Please paste the command you are trying to send the transaction with. A plain transaction needs
21000 gas per the protocol parameters. A block on the current main net goes up to
3 * PI million / 2, or somewhat above 4 million gas.
If you get an error that the transaction exceeds the block gas limit, it usually means that you actually requested an enormous amount of gas to be attached to your transaction. Please double check your values.
