How to send files greater than 20 Mb with Outlook 2013
If you need to send files greater than 20 Mb, you have solutions:
1.use the webmail
2. change the your Windows registry to increase the Outlook allowed max file size.
3. 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;
4. compress the file attachment using a compression utility like WinZip or WinRAR. Even better, so you don’t have to manually compress each attachment.
Please note that, even if you increase the max allowed file size from the Windows registry, it may be useless because a large file attachment will anyway be rejected by the mail server of the person receiving it. Most email servers allow between 10 and 30 Mb per incoming email.
