I looked for this over the net and on support.google.com but found nothing.

I've got a Google group and if I send a mail with a size more than 8MB I'll receive a failure message due to max size limitation. According to Google help I can change the maximum file size in group settings up to 25MB. But I couldn't find anything to help me with this for my group, also I didn't find anything in my group settings.

How can I change the maximum file size of attachments for the group?

I'm not seeing any setting in the new Google Groups interface. Is the help page you're looking at outdated? Can you provide a link? – Al E. Nov 26 '12 at 13:54
Well, it is on the right top section of the page. Exactly like your gmail UI. Also it is at groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!groupsettings/YOURGROUP/… – Manoochehr Nov 27 '12 at 8:08

Google Groups doesn’t support bigger sizes for attachments. To my knowledge, it allows a maximum of 4MB. I think the upload size limit it the same. If you try to upload any attachments exceeding the file size limit, they will not be posted in the group. And the error mail will be bounced back to the sender only.
