When I uploaded a lot of attachments through Gmail, my account got suspended for a day. So, to avoid that issue in advance, how can I know how many MB of data can I send (or save in draft) in Gmail per day?
Never heard of this either but I tried to find out what these limits are. Per their help:
- Maximum individual email size (including attachments) is currently 25 megabytes. Source
- Maximum number of recipients per email is 500 (or 100 if you are using it via some POP or IMAP client). Source
I couldn't find any specific reference to a daily upload limit but did run across this Lifehacker post about a Firefox addon called Gspace that takes advantage of the amount of storage provided by Gmail. In their FAQ they mention that you can have your account suspended for 24 hours if you pass some upload threshold. However, no specific numbers were listed.

5. My Gmail account was locked for 24 hours. What should I do?
A. Wait for 24 hours :) . This happens if large amounts of data is uploaded or downloaded in a single day. So, try to avoid that. If you are lucky, sometimes even though the account is locked, you can try logging again. It might work. (It worked for me sometimes, I don't know the reason).
Perhaps someone with better googling skills can track down the exact limit.
