While Gmail is the most popular email service in the world, it is not without flaws. Sometimes emails get stuck in the outbox and refuse to send entirely. Users also experience certain issues with uploading certain files as attachments. In this article, we show you how to fix the ‘Can’t send Emails with attachments from Gmail account’ issue.
Check attachment size
Gmail does not allow email attachments more than 25MB in size. Check your attachment size, and if they exceed the limit, try sending them in two separate emails. You can also upload the attachment to Google Drive and email the link to the recipient. You can also use a file compressor to decrease the file size.
Switch off the Firewall
It is possible that the firewall on your PC is blocking the email you’re trying to send. In order to disable the firewall, go to Control Panel>Network and Internet>System and Security and select Windows Defender Firewall. On the left-hand side panel, select Turn Windows Defender Firewall on or off and select the Turn off Windows Defender Firewall option.
Clear Browser Cache and Cookies
Some temporary files stored in the Cache may be keeping your email from getting sent. Simply go to Settings>Privacy and Security and clear the cache and cookies. This is one of the best ways to fix the ‘Can’t Send Emails With Attachments From Gmail Account’ issue.
If your use a lot of extensions on your browser, they may be getting in the way of sending your email. Instead of turning off all the extensions, you can quickly send the mail through an incognito window. If you’re using Google Chrome, simply press Ctrl+Shift+N to launch the incognito tab.
Use another browser
If you’re certain your email isn’t getting sent due to a browser-related issue, you can try sending it through another browser. Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, and Microsoft Edge are all credible web browsers you can use for this task. You should also check if your current browser has an update due before moving on to another browser. Oftentimes, a pending update contains the fix to any glitches or bugs, so it is a good idea to keep your browser updated.
