    How Can I Send an EXE via Gmail?

    Google’s Gmail email system system prevents all executable file types and some system files from being sent via its servers as a virus protection measure. This is good but also very annoying if like us you often have to send these types of files to customers and other people with in the company. If you try to send an file type that Google does not like Gmail will give you an error message along the lines of “FILE is an executable file. For security reasons, Gmail does not allow you to send this type of file”.

    Luckily there is a couple of fairly easy ways to get round it.

     

    How Can I Send an EXE via Gmail?

    How Can I Send an EXE via Gmail?

    Methods.

    1. Use a free facility such as dropbox to upload your file and then email the direct link to the file so that your friend \ colleague \ customer can easily download it to their device. Another advantage to this is that you are not limited to the size of the file.
    2. Rename the file without an exe extension, Compress it with any compression utility and then attach it. Now it will get attached, and uploaded successfully.The receiver of the email should uncompress the attachment and rename it again with exe extension.
