The maximum size of an email message on Web Hosting Hub servers is 50MB. This includes all attachments to an email, not just a single attachment. So, the total size of all attachments to an email cannot exceed 50MB. For example, if you try to send an email with 6 attachments and each of those attachments is 10MB, you will not be able to send your message and will receive an error similar to "Message size exceeds server limit" or "Message size exceeds maximum permitted"

While this limit might seem low to some users, please keep in mind that it's actually much more generous than other email providers. For example, Gmail limits you to 25MB while Yahoo limits you to 10MB per message. It's also worth noting that email was never intended to be used for sending large attachments. Unexpected timeouts can occur when the recipient tries to download large attachments.

A much more efficient method of providing a large file to someone is to upload that file to your account and then providing a link to the file. You can also create an FTP account and upload a file to the folder assigned to that FTP account. Your recipient can then use an FTP program or even a plugin for their browser to download the file.

If you have any questions about email attachments, please feed free to contact our Support Department or submit a question to our Customer Community area.
