I am using iPhone 6 Plus, I tried to export Whatsapp chat with Media of 1 contact and send it via the Mail app.

The attachment was 48MB, the Mail app provided two options for me to choose as the attachment was too big.
Option 1: Use Mail Drop
Option 2: Trying sending attachment.

I selected Option 2, but I never receive any error, never receive the email, and I even cannot find it in the Outbox.

Where is the email then?

It's against etiquette to send such big files through email. Most mail servers will reject it.
Just consider it lost, and start again, now for option 1.

The email is just disappeared and can’t find it in any folders. Also no error is shown.
