Adding an Attachment

The NMU E-Mail server holds a 20 MB size limit on all incoming E-Mail.  This is the maximum size of the total email which includes message headers, text, and attachments. The majority of files (pictures, sound files, etc.) will double in size when they are sent as an attachment, so this means that the maximum file size for attachments is somewhat less than 10 MB.

To learn how to add an attachment, choose a client.
