Outlook 2013 max file limit: “The file you’re attaching is bigger than the server allows.”

When you’re trying to send a file attachment in Outlook, you have two deal with two file attachment limits: the max limit enforced by your recipient’s mail server and the max attachment limit enforced by Outlook.

Like its previous versions, Outlook 2013 limits you to maximum 20 Mb per email attachments (no matter if it’s a single file or multiple files that count to 20 Mb). If you try to attach files greater than 20 Mb, you will receive the following Outlook error message:
Max file size exceeded - Outlook 2013

How to send files greater than 20 Mb with Outlook 2013

If you need to send files greater than 20 Mb, you have three solutions:

1. tweak your Windows registry to increase the Outlook allowed max file size (see this Microsoft article);

2. upload the file(s) to a file sharing or cloud service (such as DropBox, iCloud or SkyDrive) and email the download link instead of the actual files;

3. compress the file attachment using a compression utility like WinZip or WinRAR.
