Q&A – How big attachments can you send via Gmail?
A. Currently, it’s 25MB – but that’s Gmail to Gmail. You might find that if you’re trying to send to someone using a non-Gmail account that they can’t download emails that big. (I know my email provider certainly can’t via webmail).
So what are the alternatives? The complicated option is to use a file splitter to divide your attachment into “chunks” and get the person at the other end to join them back together again.
This actually works with some video files – VOB and M2TS for example – as they can be easily joined together again without any problem.
However, a better option is probably to use something like DropBox. Dropbox allows you to send up to 1.5GB of files at once but the trick is you must do it within 60minutes otherwise you get dropped off. So obviously, if you’re trying to send files wirelessly, you won’t get anywhere near 1.5GB. But something like Dropbox might be a more convenient option depending on your needs.
