Microsoft has issued a very helpful update to its Office 365 product, now allowing its users to send emails as large as 150 MB. Many will appreciate the measure, since previously the limit was set at just 25 megabytes.

Microsoft has pretty much made its iconic Office apps available for free to mobile users, and also announced that Windows 10 is going to be free even with users with pirated versions. So Office 365 remains among the few products that Microsoft holds where users still have to pay money for it. And now it has received a very useful new feature – increase in email size.

Kevin Shaughnessy, senior program manager and Shobhit Sahay, technical product manager for the Office 365 team, said the following on the official Office.com blog:

For the last few years the largest email message you could send or receive in Office 365 was 25 MB. While 25 MB is more than enough for the majority of email, you might bump up against that limit when trying to send large slide decks, spreadsheets or videos. Outlook Web App (OWA) in Office 365 offers an easy way to “attach” a document as a link to where it’s saved on OneDrive for Business, a great option for sharing large files with your colleagues. But there are times when you’d prefer to send a large file as an actual attachment rather than a link. For those times, we’re pleased to announce that we’ve increased the allowed maximum message size to 150 MB, giving Office 365 administrators the ability to set the maximum message size of their choosing from 1 MB up to 150 MB.

Thus, from now on, Office 365 users will be able to send large files as attachments in an email, which is really convenient. Sure, there are many ways to send large files between devices, but sometimes you want to use just your email. And it’s good to see that Microsoft finally understands this, too.

However, you should know that the default maximum message size for Office 365 mailboxes is still 25 MB, so you will have to choose the maximum size setting that you want. Follow the instructions from the above Office.com blog post and you will be able to learn how to change the settings for your organization.
