We use email to send small files all the time. Gmail, Hotmail and Yahoo Mail being the top three email services of people, each of them has its own storage and attachment size limit. Due to the fierce competition among three of them, storage and file size limit have been increased over the years and users also have lost track of the actual situation. I will keep an eye on three of the email services and update the data from time to time.

Current storage and attachment size limit

  • Gmail – 7.5GB storage, 25MB attachment
  • Hotmail – Unlimited mail storage, 25MB attachment
  • Yahoo Mail – Unlimited mail storage,  25MB attachment

*information up to date as of 25 Jan 2011

Email attachment size limit may be a restriction for you to share files but you can always go for other good and free online file sharing service.
