What is the size limit for a Spectrum email attachment?
Almost all emails imply attachment size limits on their users. The attachment size limit for Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo, AOL, etc. ranges from 10MB to 50MB per attachment or file.
The attachment size limit for Spectrum email is 20 MB per email. That means you cannot send files summing up to more than 20 Mb in a single mail through Comcast. Moreover, there is a limit on the total size of the email as well. The total size of the email that consists of email text (Subject & Body) and attached files must not exceed 30 Mb.
In simpler words, you cannot send emails larger than 30 Mb or emails with attachments having a total size of more than 20Mb as per the limits laid by Spectrum.
How to increase email attachment file size on Spectrum?
You cannot increase the size limit of email attachments on Spectrum. Moreover, you cannot increase the attachment size limit even on other email hosts like Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, etc.
You can only increase file size limits on email attachments with private servers and your web domain’s emails.
There are several ways to bypass the email attachment size limit on Comcast. Several runarounds from the attachment size limit are as follows:
Compressing your files before attaching them can help you send large files through email. You can compress your files to trim unnecessary parts using online and offline tools that you may download from the internet.
While this method is quick and easy, the file quality, such as picture quality, might get reduced upon file compression.

Cloud storage service
You can use cloud storages services such as Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, etc. to share large files through email without any data loss.
Firstly, upload the file you want to send through mail on the cloud storage of your choice and create a shareable link for the file. Paste the link of the file into the email body in place of the actual file and send it to the respective recipient. Consequently the recipient can access the file by clicking on the file link.
This method is considered best for sharing large files that cannot be compressed or split into smaller ones. Interestingly, sharing files through cloud storage does not involve quality loss and is convenient as well.
This method has a an advantage over other methods because you can even share folders with Cloud storage links.
For instance you have multiple files for which the total size exceeds the attachment size limit. You can send these files by splitting them into different emails.
However, the shortcoming with this method is that the receiver has to open multiple emails one by one. Also, it is impractical to send hundreds of attachments one by one.
Moreover, you cannot send a file by dividing it into multiple emails if it does not support splitting.
Why is there a limit on Spectrum email attachment size?
All email service providers limit the maximum email size that one can send to avoid server overload. If the servers are made to store massive data, they may stop working due to overload.
From the environment perspective, sharing and storing files on a server costs more energy than offline storage. It results in increased carbon footprints and higher greenhouse gases emission.
