I often develop apps in Visual Studio that contains some invalid file types for Gmail to be attached (e.g. Form's EXE file), in the past I easily Zipped or RARed my folder with some arbitrary extension e.g. FileName.abc or FileName.123 this way Gmail never blocked my attachment.
But since a few months they have updated, most probably they check the file contents to decide what kind of file it actually is, so I am stumped, I cant use my good old trick to attach such files. I have to upload on Drive or Dropbox But I don't like this method, it is lengthy especially considering email is already opened, and often the attachment sizes are less than 20 MB
Is there any way?
I tried with all the above methods, still, nothing works, Gmail somehow decides its a security risk. And they are just normal EXE files (they do not involve any security level or system level access, just a desktop application to read data from local excel file)
I did try following methods as by default they involve more steps than uploading on Drive or Dropbox
Splitting the file and then attaching
Dragging my zip file inside a word document, then attaching Word document in email (this method actually works when combined with other methods e.g. Password protect or extensionless file name) but still it's very lengthy
Any other possibility please?
