Sometimes size really does matter, and an email attachment size limit is no exception. Being unable to send an email because the attached file is too large is highly frustrating. Fortunately, this is a problem of the past with the 50 MB email attachment capacity of a mail.com account.
Email attachments up to 50 MB at mail.com
Most of us send attachments with emails on a regular basis, from basic text files to job applications and everything in between. However, the majority of email providers out there offer around a 15 MB or 20 MB email attachment limit. This usually means that larger media files exceeding this limit - like pictures, audio files and videos, or perhaps an eBook - cannot be attached and sent via email. The email attachment must either be uploaded to File Storage, and accessed through a secure login, or compressed into a zip file.
Additionally, when working on a current project with multiple documents, a lower email attachment size limit means that multiple email attachments must be sent. This can make your working process quite messy and confusing, particularly when the project is large. This also requires extra time and attention when sending your files to your colleagues. Here at mail.com however, we understand that your time is valuable. This is why we offer a 50 MB email attachment limit with our email accounts - allowing our customers to email large files easily and with no hassle.
Quickly and easily send:
- Video files
- Image files
- Audio files
- Many more
With mail.com you can send these large email attachments without issue and you can avoid the hassle of having to upload a file to a server in order for the recipient to access that file. With the mail.com 50 MB email attachment size limit you have the freedom to do as you please and the ability to simplify and streamline your communications.
File compression for intelligent email attachments
Although with mail.com’s 50 MB email attachment size limit there is no need for file compression in most day-to-day situations, the extra space also turns file compression into an asset when you are dealing with multiple larger files simultaneously.
- Rather than sending an email with each file separately, it often makes sense to convert multiple files into compressed zip files so that you and the receiver can keep them organized.
- Coupled with mail.com’s large email attachment limit, file compression becomes a powerful tool in any work setting or personal environment.

Large file emailing & spam filters
One thing to note is that even though mail.com allows you to send larger email attachments than most other providers, there may still be an issue on the recipients’ end when receiving that large file email. Mostly this is because many email service providers, including mail.com, have spam filters in place to block harmful mail from entering the inboxes of their clients.
- It is common that emails with large attachments end up getting blocked in the process. The spam filter labels these types of emails as spam because unauthorized emails with large file attachments often contain harmful viruses and malware, which are understandably syphoned out as a preventative security measure.
- Therefore, when sending large email attachments to recipients, make sure that you inform them and that they have identified your email address as “not spam” by adding it to their contact list as a recognized and authorized sender.
Receiving large files with antivirus protection
And of course, spam and virus protection are not merely hindrances when sending emails with attachments, but are also necessary for your own protection. In fact, these tools help to ensure that whatever you receive is free from email attachment viruses and other forms of malware.
- Mail.com utilizes a spam protection feature that moves all unsolicited emails to your spam folder. You can always manage your folders manually by moving undetected spam from your inbox to your spam folder, or marking a new sender that has landed in your spam folder as a trusted contact.
- Along with the spam filter, mail.com also implements a virus protection feature that automatically checks all incoming and outgoing mail for viruses, including email attachments, and intercepts infected emails.
- You are informed of all detected threats via email from mail.com. With a secure inbox, you are far less likely to be infected by a virus that can be forwarded to your contact list against your will.
