Rename your file to something like example.exe_ and try again.

The way I do this is to click the Forward option and then type in a new Subject and clear the message text so I have an new message but with the attachments in place. I'd be surprised if there's a quicker way than this; entering a new Subject doesn't take that long.

has:attachment — show mails which have an attachment filename:xyz — search for attachments based on type or name

Thanks to the new GMail AntiVirus Scanner, you cannot send or receive emails with exe, dll, ocx, com or bat attachments even if they are sent in a zipped (.zip, .tar, .tgz, .taz, .z, .gz) format (The .rar format is still allowed). Since you cannot Turn Off GMail AntiVirus Scanning, you can use these GMail hacks to send program file (exe), virus ...

After some googling this is the best answer I can give you Click on "Options" then click on "Show original": The view source of the new window and then save that to a file that you can then attach readnotify send as attachement (gmail)

This is a known issue with all of Google's services. They do not support the .eml or the less common .mht, both of which are known and established formats. In this case it has been (for years now) one area that all the others (Microsoft, Apple, Mozilla, and most of the rest of the community) are ahead of Google on. The only option, aside from convincing ...

Most if not all of the methods for sending large files work for this as well, especially if the recipient is not too tech-savy, as it doesn't require renaming a file extension or downloading an alternate archive application.

If you get an email with a Word (.doc), Powerpoint or PDF attachment then there are two links next to it, 'View' and 'Download'. When you click on 'View' the document is opened by Google Docs and there is a link at the top to allow you to 'Save in Google Docs' Excel attachments give you three options, 'View at HTML' ,'Open as a Google spreadsheet' and ...

No, "download and add to GDrive" copies the file between Google servers without downloading it to your computer. That's why it's built in to Gmail. You can download the file to your Dropbox folder on your computer. (You could save steps by putting a Dropbox-folder shortcut where your "Save" dialog can use it. This varies by your desktop OS.) But you still ...

Zip it up using Winrar or 7zip. Gmail understands .zip format but not .rar and .7z.

Yes, business and education accounts as well, have the same attachment limit of 25MB. See here: http://www.google.com/support/a/bin/answer.py?answer=175121

Ironically, the Gmail client for Android displays them beautifully. So if you have an Android phone, just open the email there—and you don't even have to forward it. ;)

You can now use Gmail's "Save to Drive" option, and then load the file in the other email from the Drive. This can be faster and more efficient than downloading the file and re-uploading it from your computer. If the user doesn't have access to the file, Gmail will prompt you to "share and send" when you send the email.

Most likely uploaded to the server, since that is the slowest operation. Any special encoding done to the file probably takes fractions of a second on Google's beefy mail servers. Either way it is probably not wise to try to interrupt it if you want your file attached.

I'm afraid you can't. Looking at Gmail help, there's nothing related to searching within attachments. You can specify a file name, but that's it: filename:physicshomework.txt Or you could save files you want to search through to Google Docs. The simple explanation why it's not possible is that it would require a tremendous amount of indexing to be ...

No, sending an email with a Google Doc and selecting "Send without sharing" does not add it as a regular attachment. The recipient will still get the same email, with a link to the Doc you sent. When clicked, the user will see the page that says "You must request permission to view this document" The best use of this feature that I can think of is to set ...

I've found no solution yet, but I found it's faster using drag & drop to download the images. If the images would have been added as attachments, the option to download them all at once would appear.

No ... detach the file, rename it, and attach it again. Good file naming schemes and discipline in following them will pay off in the long run.

New copies are created once the email is sent. The file(s) only exists on the server until the email is actually sent. That's why you can get bounceback messages because an email is too large in size from recipients. The attachments are actually embedded within the email itself when it's sent (and forwarded).

Changing file extension is OK as long as it is like *.zip1 or *.cnvrt. But, we should never change it to *.png or *.doc because the recipient might have known extension hidden (under Folder Options) and downloaded file will be associated with default application. If s/he is not tech-savvy, you might have to put extra effort to tell the person to turn that ...

If the attachment is document that opens in Google docs, you can open it and email it from Google docs to new address. This bypasses transfer to desktop and re-upload.

If you click on the "Show Search Options" link to the right of the search input fields you are able to specify additional parameters for your search, which include "has attachment" and "from" a specific sender. If you prefer manually typing your queries, from:(x@y.com) has:attachment will produce the same results.

The data is uploaded via normal browser means (binary) onto the Google servers. Then, on the server, it is converted into a normal attachment and the email will be sent. Same for download: GMail presents you the icon for the attachment, you click it, Google extracts the original data and downloads it via regular browser means (binary). In case of multiple ...

To get around the security check, you can change the extension of your file so that it won't be scanned by GMail. For example, just rename your 'psdfile.zip' to 'psdfile.zi' That's just a workaround since the recipient has to rename the file back, losing some usability... But that's ok in most of the case.

Upload the PSD file to Google Docs & share it over email. The advantage with this approach is that Google Docs Viewer will even let recipients view the file online with Google Docs Viewer instead of opening it with PhotoShop.

You can enable the Inserting Images Lab. I don't have an email client set up to test receiving inline images, but sending an inline image from another account with it enabled works fine. Source: http://gmailblog.blogspot.com/2009/04/new-in-labs-inserting-images.html

There is no way to set the way an image is cropped, but the default cropping ratio has since changed. It's now 276x140 instead of the old ratio of 310x100, meaning you'll be able to see more of the image. Also, smaller images are no longer stretched out to fill the width, meaning you won't get a lo-res version.

If the emails are grouped by conversation, click on the respective conversation, and then click on x older messages, to partially open all the messages. After this, scroll down to the last message that has a clip icon next to its date.
