What is max size e-mail that i can send ?

Hi,

 

What is the maximum size of an email that I can send by SKY.
Knowing that I am also limited by the server that receives this e-mail.

 

Thank you for your responses.

 

Jérôme

 

 

Best Regards,
Jérôme

Re: What is max size e-mail that i can send ?

Raw transmission size is 41,697,280 bytes (almost 40 MiB). In reality, maximum attachment size is quite a lot less due to base64 encoding overheads, so 30 MiB is the best estimate. This applies to SMTP, I don't know about webmail.

 

220 smtp.mail.yahoo.com ESMTP ready
EHLO client
250-smtp423.mail.ir2.yahoo.com Hello client [90.200.xxx.xxx])
250-PIPELINING
250-ENHANCEDSTATUSCODES
250-8BITMIME
250-SIZE 41697280
250 STARTTLS

Use a service like dropbox/onedrive/Google Drive etc…. then you just need to send a link in the email, emails was never designed to send large files.
