How large of an attachment can I send via e-mail?

StudentStaffFaculty

The total size of a message when sending, including any attachments, may not exceed 25MB.

This applies to Exchange Mail, and Torero Mail. Any messages larger than 25MB (total size of the message including any attachments, pictures, etc) will be rejected by the server. The server will generate an error which will be sent back to your inbox to let you know that the file was too large.

Some organizations may have their incoming attachment size limit set higher or lower than 25MB, so while our server may allow you to send a 25MB message, the receiving server may still reject it due to limitations on their end.

Our server currently allows for up to 25MB when receiving email, so if a message exceeds this total, the sender will receive a failure of delivery message.
