The maximum attachment size for UMail on the Web is 5 MB per message. There is no limit for the number of attachments you can send as long as they are within the allowed size.
As a courtesy to other users, we recommend that you use UDrive for large files (e.g., PowerPoint files, images, videos, or sound) instead of attaching them to your messages.
Files may change size when converted into UMail attachments. The size of a file on your computer may not be the same when attached in UMail. For security reasons, UMass Amherst IT blocks attachments with certain extensions. See our UMail F.A.Q. for more information.
UMail on the Web lets you set several options for outgoing attachments.
To attach a file:
The following are instructions for incoming attachments:
You can forward messages with attachments by click Forward, then select Entire Message or Body Text with Attachments at the top of any individual message.
To forward a message without an attachment, at the top of any individual message, click Forward, then select Body Text Only. This option is not available if you choose to forward a message from your Inbox view.
