How to Email Large Files with Gmail, Google Drive

, , , , ,

Google’s Gmail email file attachment limit is 25MB. If your email file attachment exceeds 25MB, it will be uploaded to your Google Drive and linked to from within the email.

Assuming your Google Drive is empty, you can upload an attachment that is nearly 15GB! That’s Gigabytes in case you missed it.

Upon sending your email you are prompted to select your sharing preferences. Note that you can also use your Google Drive account to send file attachments that are under the 25MB attachment file size limit. This can be handy in case you want to share the same file with multiple contacts.
