Delete Gmail Account

We all know that we can not send files having a size of more than 25 MB via emails. Gmail has a 25 MB maximum size limit for attachments. But this limit is now no more and Google has added one way to send files up to 10 GB via email. For this, Google has deeply integrated Google Drive with Gmail. Large File File which you are sending will be stored in your Google Drive account and then it will be shared with the person whom you are sending emails.

But this can be done in a newer compose window. If you have not already switched to a newer compose window, its time to switch and enjoy new cool features of Gmail.
