Cannot attach/send archived files from/to Gmail email address

The first time I tried to send archived files to/from a Gmail email account was one month ago and I noticed that you cannot send these kinds of files. I tried multiple times and failed always.

If I send an email to a Gmail account, I get a reply with the text message:

This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.

Delivery to the following recipients failed.


Viewing the email source, I found out this:

Final-Recipient: rfc822;anemailaddress@gmail.com Action: failed  
Status: 5.5.0 Diagnostic-Code: smtp;552-5.7.0 This message was blocked  
because its content presents a potential 552-5.7.0 security issue.

The archived files I tried were .zip, .rar, no password, with password, encrypted. None of them worked. The archive contained a Kicad project.

Is there a way to circumvent this?
