Midgard is pleased to announce that with immediate effect the maximum email file size allowed through all your mail servers is now 50MB.
Important note about email attachment sizes:
- Attachments may become much larger than their original file sizes.
- This is due to the encoding employed by email servers when sending non text-based information. All attachments are affected by this, including word processing files like .doc or .docx. This means that a file that is only 2MB on your computer’s hard drive could become significantly larger once attached to your email.
- The receiving e-mail provider will reject an e-mail if the file size exceeds their maximum file size, which could potentially be lower than the limit imposed by Midgard.
- If so, you will receive a bounce-back message from that e-mail provider informing you that the mail was not delivered because the attachment is too large.
