Having problem sending attachment > 2MB to others (Error: Missed upload deadline (state SENT_MESSAGE))
Posted on 2014-03-29
Although I had seen a numerous post about not able to send attachments out with gmail, but I don't see any answers so far. Hopefully someone who had experienced it can offer some advice on this:
Problem: Outgoing emails with attachment are either slow in delivering (< 2MB), or would not deliver at all (>2MB) by returning error: "Missed upload deadline (state SENT_MESSAGE)"
I had done different tests with increasing the size of attachment:
- No attachment: delivery instantly
- 1MB attachment: appox 5 mins
- 2MB attachment: 1appox 5 mins
- 3MB attachment: bounce back after 24 hours and final failure email after 3 days
Missed upload deadline (state SENT_MESSAGE)
I used Hotmail, Yahoo, to deliver mails with those sizes, and they were fine. Tried search the error "Missed upload deadline (state SENT_MESSAGE)", but I can't find much information about it. If anyone has any suggestion I would appreciate it very much. thank you.
