Answer

Email size including attachments is restricted to 18MB.

Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) is an Internet standard for electronic mail (email) transmission. While attachments are part of the protocol, It is not meant for transferring large files. If you have need of electronically transmitting large files we suggest looking into one of the many file transfer and hosting services available. I.E. Hosted FTP, Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.
