Gmail Increased Max Attachment Size to 20MB

Posted on 28th May, 2007

GMail has recently increased their maximum attachment size from 10 MB to 20 MB. However according to GMail Help Center “the precise amount allowable will depend on the attachment.”

I am not sure what that means exactly but I suspect the file type will determine the allowable size for the attachment.

Gmail competitors, Yahoo! Mail and Hotmail both have allowable attachment sizes of up to 10MB.

If you’re looking for a free email service that offers larger attachment size, you might want to check LYCOS Mail. It offers 3GB storage with no limit on the attachment size you can send.

The catch? Your account will be deleted if there no activity for 30 days.

    There is no point getting larger attachment size because it will depend on the recipient attachment size. Unless you plan to receive attachment size more than 20MB, then you apply Lycos free email service.

    Yes, previously the maximum file size per attachment for Gmail was 10MB. Now with increase of size, you can actually send bigger file size per attachment eg. send video/audio files
