Problems with attachments

Experiencing difficulty when attaching a file? Here are a few common issues:

  • Special characters - remove special characters from the title and try again.
  • Unsupported web browser - make sure you're using a supported web browser.
  • Large file size - emails can't exceed 25MB.
  • Some file types present a security risk - we don't support a variety of file formats, such as .bat, .cmd, .exe, .hta, .iso, .jar, .lnk, .msi, .scr, and .vbs, because they are often used to distribute malware.
