Some Gmail users might not like the incoming email attachment limit that Gmail has in place. Sometimes your files are bigger. In the past, the service would only allow Gmail users to receive emails with an attachment no bigger than 25MB. If an attachment was bigger than that it was automatically blocked on receipt.
However, Gmail has now confirmed that the incoming email attachment limit has now been raised to 50MB. That will please anyone working with larger files headed to a gmail account.
This means that Gmail users can now receive emails that contain attachments of up to 50MB. Gmail hasn’t made the change to the outgoing limit though. Gmail users can still only send emails with a maximum attachment size of 25MB. Maybe we will get that soon. There are many email providers out there that allow their users to send far bigger files as email attachments. It is just that Google does not.
Google confirmed this yesterday in a post on its G Suite updates blog. It will be a welcome change, though we all want the company to make a similar change to the outgoing limit as well. Hopefully they do it before too long and don’t make us wait years.
