Sending large files via mail - Gmail

E-mail is still the most popular business medium for communicating and sending files. Despite the great popularity of e-mail and technical developments that make it increasingly secure and convenient, a common problem remains that mail servers prevent you from sending large files. The result: error messages and user frustration.

When this happens, you often see within organizations that employees look for solutions themselves and end up with insecure services. Or, when it comes to internal file traffic, people opt to use a USB stick or SD card. Often, users do their own research and come up with the most creative and exotic solutions. But from a security perspective, this is exactly what you don't want!

Another "solution" is sometimes to compress files to zip format. While such an action does reduce the size of files, with some file types it makes little difference and the package to be sent remains too large for the mail server even as .zip.

Why are there limits on mail servers?

Providers of e-mail services such as Outlook and Gmail impose limits on file sizes because inbox space is limited. Storage space can be scarce, which is why they restrict mail senders from sending large files. This is exactly why cloud-based file-sharing services are growing in popularity; only one service is not the other.
