When you upload attachments to Gmail, you may get error messages saying “failed to attach!”. If you come across such error message first thing you need to do is, installing latest Adobe flash player.
You can get latest Adobe flash player from http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ . In given address you can check whether you’re having the latest version of the flash player. If you don’t have one, please install the latest version.
Google says this feature is not supported in Linux; therefore Linux users will have to wait some time.
If you’re already on latest version of Adobe Flash Player (as I’m writing this article, latest version of flash player available is version 10.0):
- Switch your attachment settings from ‘Advanced attachment features’ to ‘Basic attachment features’ (click Settings and select the General tab to change this setting). Save your changes and try to upload your attachment again.
- Try another browser: if you’re on IE then install Firefox or Chrome and check the feature on it.
- Disable your proxy: Most of our home users don’t use this feature, so don’t worry.
- If you continue to have trouble after following these suggestions, report it here.
PS: Now you can upload up to 25 MB to Gmail :), but make sure your mail receiver also using Gmail, because if he can’t receive 25 MB attachment then no point of sending a mail with 25 MB.
