Outlook Attachment size error prevents Sharefile plugin from working

  • Updated 3 months ago
We are unable to use the Sharefile Outlook plugin to automatically send large attachments via a sharefile link.  We use Worldox for document management, if you try to Attach Files from the Sharefile Outlook plugin > From PC and then select the large file via Worldox, you get the Outlook error "The file you're attaching is beer than the server allows..."

This needs to be fixed.  I understand I could upload the document to sharefile first, but that loses the utility of the tool.

Hi David,

In order for that to work, you would need to adjust what your exchange server (or Outlook, depending on how you have things set up) allows.  Please see this Microsoft article about that message:

We have the same problem.   I instruct users to download file to Desktop or Network drive, then select the file from that location instead of from Wdx
