Gmail Tips and Tricks – Gmail attachment file types

Gmail offers easy attachment feature that is very powerful.

When you attach any files, Gmail uploads the files as you compose, unlike yahoo mail you do not need to wait for the attachment page to complete the uploading.

Gmail also restricts few file types just to avoid virus issues.

These includes executable files like .exe. You cannot send these files through Gmail, even if you compress these files into the following format these files are not allowed to send.

.exe with compressed formats like .zip, .tar, .tgz, .taz, .z, .gz

If these files are sent, your email will bounce.

But there is also a way to send a .exe file by compressing it using WinRar. This WinRar application can be found free of cost.

You have 20MB mail attachment option in Gmail.
