Gmail Attachment Filter
I ran across something interesting today. A friend asked me to send him a certain exe to his email. Not thinking much about it, I composed an email on my gmail, attached the exe, hit send and then seen an error in which basically told me google doesn’t allow exes to be sent through gmail.
Irritating enough, but seemingly familiar, I decided to ‘get smart’ and zip the exe in a folder and send it. Same thing.
I also tried gzipping the archive and sending it.. didn’t work either.
I finally compressed the folder+exe to make a bz2 archive and sent it away. Worked like a charm.
Where was Google attachment filters then!? *grin*
