  • A single email sent to a user or by a user may not exceed 10 Megabytes. Remember that attachments are MIME encoded. Depending on type of file you are trying to send, you may not be able to attach a file larger than 7.5 Megabytes due to encoding.
  • Spam or junk email is unsolicited email often sent in bulk to numerous recipients. Clicking on links in junk email may expose users to computer viruses and online scams. Given the many different ways your email address can be obtained by a 'Spammer', the biggest single thing you can do is simply control who has your email address. You can also unsubscribe to unwanted newsletters or mailing lists by clicking on the 'Unsubscribe' link usually found at the bottom of the message.
