Email: Email Attachment External Maximum File Size

Internally there is no maximum attachment file size. However, emailing large files is inefficient and eats up allocated email storage space. It is encouraged to use other means of transferring large files (e.g. network share, external USB key or drive, dropbox, etc.).
Employee email maximum size set at mail gateway: 30mb
Student email maximum size set at mail gateway :   20mb

Keep in mind that when you send a file as an attachment the file will be encoded in the text which will generally result in the file size inside the email message is increased. This will vary based on the type of file being encoded. Therefore it is best to keep attachments under:

Employee:  20 mb
Student:     14 mb

The receiving email gateway/server may have their own inbound maximum file sizes set, so there could be cases where although the email may have been under the maximum file size on the UFV end, it is rejected on the receivers end.
