Gmail users now have the ability to receive and open file attachments up to 50MB, thanks to Google’s latest update of its e-mail service.
“Sending and receiving attachments is an important part of email exchanges,” reads a Google blog post. “While Google Drive offers a convenient way to share files of any size, sometimes you need to receive large files as direct e-mail attachments.”
Gmail users will still be restricted to 25MB when it comes to sending attachments, however. For those needing to send larger attachments, the company suggests e-mailing a link to documents stored in Google Drive.
The new feature is rolling out to all Gmail users by week’s end.
According to Google’s G Suite Administrator, Gmail account holders are limited on the number of messages they can receive “per minute, hour, and day.” The limit is to keep Google’s systems “healthy” and user accounts “safe.”
Gmail users can receive up to 86,400 e-mails per day, 3,600 e-mails per hour and 60 messages per minute.
“Setting up the account to receive frequent automated messages, such as log files, increases the likelihood of reaching the limits,” Google said. “If an account reaches the limit, a user cannot receive any new e-mail and may experience general account degradation, such as slow searching. All incoming messages are bounced or deferred back to the sender.”
