Email is the oldest and most preferred medium of communication over the Internet. Sometimes we need to send large files with email as attachments. If you are using one of the most popular email services such as Gmail, Outlook.com or Yahoo, all of them impose a attachment file size limit for sending emails.  Fortunately, there are a number of ways we can send files in email if the file size limits are exceeded.

Let’s first discuss about the imposed limits of each service and then we’ll also give a workaround for sending larger files via email.

There can be two scenarios while interpreting the size limits of each email service:

  1. Attachment size limit for a single file in an email
  2. Attachment size limit for all attachments including the email body

We will discuss both of these scenarios for each service.

Email attachment size limits

Gmail

Gmail attachment size limit
Gmail attachment size limit

The maximum size of all the attachments with the email can be 25 MB. If it is greater than 25 MB, Gmail will automatically attempt to upload the desired attachment on Google Drive and place a link to the attachment inside the email.

If you want to send executable (.exe), Google will not allow you to attach them directly to the email even if you are attaching it in the form of a zip file. You will need to upload them to Google Drive directly and then paste the link in the email.

The free version of Google Drive which comes along with Gmail gives you 15 GB or storage. You can also buy more storage if required.

Outlook.com/Hotmail

Outlook.com attachment size limit
Outlook.com attachment size limit

Outlook.com/Hotmail has a generous attachment size limit of 33 MB. If you are exceeding this limit, you will have an option to upload the file to OneDrive and keep a link in the email. Unlike Gmail, Outlook.com does not automatically upload the attachment to OneDrive but will give you the option to do this by clicking the upload button.

If the file size exceeds 25 MB, Outlook.com will give you a warning that the file is too large but will let you attach it with the email.

And Outlook.com is intelligent enough that it will also calculate the remaining size of the files which can be attached with the single email. For example, I attached a file of 26 MB. When I tried attaching more files, it gave me a warning that I could attach files with a maximum size of 7 MB.

Microsoft OneDrive gives you 5 GB of storage for free.

Yahoo Mail

Yahoo Mail attachment file size limit

For Yahoo Mail, the maximum size of the complete email including the attachments and email body is 25 MB. Yahoo does not give any option for using a cloud storage at the moment. It only tells the user that large attachment support is coming soon.

Let’s hope the attachment size will be something which can distinguish Yahoo from other providers.

Outlook client

Outlook is a popular email client especially for corporate environments and checking multiple email from a single interface. Earlier, Outlook email client used to have a file attachment size of 10 MB only but this seems to have removed from the latest version. Now Outlook follows the attachment file size limits of the email provider instead of creating its own limits.

iCloud Mail

If you are using Apple’s iCloud Mail, it will give you the attachment size limit of 20 MB only. If the file size is larger than 20 MB, iCloud Mail will give you an option to upload the file in Mail Drop which has a free storage of 5 GB and the attachment can be retained for up to 30 days.

Facebook Messenger

If you are using Facebook Messenger, you can send a file of 25 MB maximum. But there is not limit on how many files you can send. You can send as many files as you want.

Skype

Skype gives users a generous file size limit of 300 MB. There is no limit on how many files you can send.

WhatsApp

WhatsApp has a limit of 16 MB for sending a single file. There is no limit on how many files you can send.

Workaround for attachment size limits and policies

The easiest way to send larger files is to compress them and then try to send them within the size limits. If it doesn’t work, a majority of email providers give you some sort of cloud storage uploading capabilities. If it still doesn’t work for you then you can use public services like WeTransfer which provide greater size limits. Here are some services:

FileTransfer.io – Send files up to 6 GB, can be downloaded up to 50 times and is kept in the cloud for 21 days.

SendGB – Send files up to 4GB each. The files are kept for 7 days.

SendAnywhere – No size limit. SendAnywhere sets itself apart by not limiting the file size and securing the uploaded files with a six digit code. The user who has the code will be able to download files. The shared files links only last for a maximum of 24 hours in the free version.

Which service do you use for sending files in your emails? Have we missed any service? Please let us know through comments below.

Google Chrome 66 stable is available for download and installation. You will find Chrome 66 offline installer links for all Operating Systems including Android, Linux, Windows and Mac OS in this article.

Chrome 66 Version Check
Chrome 66 Version Check

Chrome 66 update includes 62 bug fixes. You can check all the fixed vulnerabilities here. Let’s go through the features and then the download links.

What’s new in Chrome 66

Autoplay with mute volume

The most visible improvement in Chrome 66 is the autoplay content with sound is blocked by default. This feature was set to be introduced in Chrome 63 and was highly anticipated but was delayed. It’s finally here in Chrome 66.

There are two scenarios which can be applied to this feature:

  1. All videos with autoplay sound will be blocked by Chrome.
  2. All videos with autoplay sound, will have sound muted while the videos will still be played.

When I tested these settings, I got both the scenarios randomly and I was not able to figure out what exactly triggers the scenario.

There is a feature called Media Engagement Index (MEI) which measures the user behavior with respect to videos and assigns each site a specific score. If you are a frequent user of video on a typical site, the video may start playing automatically while sound still muted until the page is focused.

You can check the MEI on your Chrome browser by going to chrome://media-engagement page.

Symantec certificates distrusted

While Firefox is still set to distrust Symantec certificates in the next version 60, Chrome 66 has already done it. If a website is using certificates by Symantec or associates like Thwate, VeriSign, Equifax, GeoTrust and RapidSSL which has been issued before 1st June 2016, Chrome 66 will start showing certificate errors.

The problem gets compounded if the site has also implemented HSTS. This means that Chrome will not let you go forward and add a certificate exception.

The only way around is using an older browser or stop using the site altogether. If you are a website owner, you may consider updating your certificate to the latest one.

Changes to developer tools

Google Chrome is both a browser and a platform (ChromeOS). The developers of Chrome make regular additions to the developer tools. Same is true for Chrome 66. There have been a few noteworthy changes in the DevTools. You can go through this video to check out the changes to developer tools in Chrome 66.

Some of the new additions and changes include blackboxing in the network panel, auto-adjustment zooming in Device Mode, HTML rendering in Preview tab, pretty-printing in Preview, response tabs etc.

Chrome 66 – What's New in DevTools

Upgrade to Chrome 66 using Chrome Update

If you are already using Chrome, you can easily upgrade your browser via Chrome update. You have to go to three dots menu on the top-right corner of the Chrome’s window and go to Help, and the About Chrome.

Java 8 Update 171 has been released and is ready for download and installation. In this article, we will discuss about the new features and enhancements of Java 8 Updated 171 and offer direct download links to full offline installers which can be used for installing Java without an Internet connection.

Let’s first go through the changes which have been made in this update. After that, we’ll discuss about how to check the installed version of Java and how to update it if it’s already installed in the system. Lastly we’ll give the direct download links to Java 8 Update 171 offline installers.

What’s new in Java 8 Update 171?

Oracle recommends that everyone should upgrade to Java 8 Update 171 if you have installed Java 8 or you can also download and install Java 10 which is the latest version of Java.

The change log of update 171 contains a lot of bug fixes. A total of 32 bugs have been fixed. Most of the bugs are related to development or security. You can go through the bug list here.

Expiry date

The Java version automatically expires when Oracle releases a new version. But if your system is offline and Java can’t check for updates, then it will automatically expire Java 8 Update 171 on 17th August 2018.

If you still don’t update, nothing will happen. You will only get warnings from Java that this version has expired and needs to be updated. All your applications which use Java will have not effect and will keep on running.

Check installed version of Java

Java 10 version check
Java 10 version check
My preferred way of checking Java version on any system is by going to command-line and type java -version. If you have installed Java for the first time, you may need to restart your computer after installing Java for this command to work properly.

Check for update using Java Control Panel app

If your Java version isn’t the latest one, you can upgrade it directly from the Java Control Panel. If an update is present it will start installing, if not, then pop up a message will appear that your Java version is already up to date.

    1. Open Control Panel (Run –> control) and go to Java.
    2. Now go to Update tab and click on “Update Now”.
    3. If any new update is available, the installer will start downloading the update, it will take 1-2 minutes to complete the downloading and installing the Java update.
    4. After installation completes, a confirmation window will say that your download is successful.

Corel PaintShop Pro 2018 is the best alternative to Adobe Photoshop. This holds true especially when Adobe has shifted to a subscription model where users have to pay a monthly fee for using Photoshop and other Adobe tools. You will find direct download links to Photoshop Pro 2018 offline installers in this article as Corel only provides a web installer on their download page.

Comparing Paintshop Pro with Adobe Photoshop

PaintShop Pro is a direct competitor of Adobe Photoshop. While Photoshop is the most used tool for image editing, PaintShop Pro has also introduced incredible features. If you want to shift from Photoshop to PaintShop, there will be a small learning curve but most of the features are the same in both the tools. There are a few differences though. The first is the pricing.

  1. Adobe Photoshop uses a subscription model where user has to pay a monthly fee for using the software. The one year subscription for Photoshop is around $120. Corel uses the same standard approach for pricing. You can buy a lifetime license of PaintShop Pro for around $80. The difference in cost can be quite broad if we think of long-term usage i.e, 3+years.
  2. PaintShop Pro includes instant effects and filters which are not installed in Photoshop by default. You will need to install them to use in Photoshop.
  3. PaintShop Pro comes with support for  XDM including support for Intel RealSense. This is not available in Photoshop.
  4. The Quick adjustment tools available in PaintShop Pro are a life saver while in Photoshop we need to use third-party filters for this purpose.
  5. PaintShop Pro also supports Photoshop plugins and can also work with Photoshop PSD files which is a big plug if you want to migrate to PaintShop smoothly.

When you login to your Windows computer, you may get an error message like this:

Your password has expired and must be changed

User password must be changed before signing in
User password must be changed before signing in

In normal circumstances, it’s absolutely fine for Windows to remind you of password change after every specific no. of days but in some conditions, this practice should be disabled. A couple of scenarios could include the following:

  1. An administrator user should not have automatic expiration of password as this will lock you out of the computer if the password is not changed on regular basis.
  2. Another condition can be when you are accessing your computer remotely. If the password expires, you won’t be able to reset it remotely and will need physical access to the system.

In this tutorial, we will share three ways to set Windows local user account passwords to never expire. We will discuss about:

  1. How to set Windows local user account passwords to never expire for all users.
  2. How to set Windows local user account passwords to never expire for a specific user.

If you are using Windows 10 Home edition, you can enable Group Policy Editor for Windows 10 Home Edition.

Configure password expiration using User Management

Windows makes it easier for us to manage local users of the system.

Password never expire for a specific user

Just follow the steps below to set a specific user account passwords to never expire:

  1. Go to Run –> lusrmgr.msc. This opens user management console.
  2. Select Users from the left hand menu.
  3. Right-click the user which you want to configure and select Properties.

    lusrmgr.msc local users and groups
    lusrmgr.msc local users and groups
  4. In General tab, check the checkbox “Password never expires”. Or simply press Alt + P keyboard shortcut.

    User Properties "Password never expires"
    User Properties “Password never expires”

Password never expire for all users

If you want that the password for all users in your system should never expire, follow the instructions below:

  1. Go to Run –> gpedit.msc
  2. Navigate to the following tree:
    Computer configuration –> Windows Settings –> Security Settings –> Account Policies –> Password Policy
  3. In the right-hand pane, select “Maximum password age” and set it to 0.

    Password policy to disable password expiry policy
    Password policy to disable password expiry policy

Setting the maximum password age to zero will disable the password expiration feature in Windows.

Configure password expiration using command-line

If you are comfortable with command-line or want to do this remotely, you can use Windows commands for enabling and disabling the above mentioned policies.

Password never expire for a specific user using command-line

Open command-prompt with administrative privileges and run the following command sequence:

  • Get the name of users currently active on the system using this command: net accounts
  • Run the following command:
    wmic useraccount where “Name=’itechticsuser'” set PasswordExpires=false
    Replace ‘itechticsuser’ with the name of user you want to configure.

    using wmic command to change password settings of a specific user
    using wmic command to change password settings of a specific user

Password never expire for all users using command-line

Open command-prompt with administrative privileges and run the following command:

  • net accounts /maxpwage:unlimited

Configure password expiration using PowerShell

You can achieve the same results using PowerShell

Password never expire for a specific user using PowerShell

  1. Press Windows Key + X + A keyboard shortcut sequence to open PowerShell with administrative privileges.
  2. Run the following command:
    Set-LocalUser -Name “itechticsuser” -PasswordNeverExpires 1
    Replace itechticsuser with your desired username.

There used to be Java version 8 for a long time but then Oracle introduced Java 9 for a short while and now Java 10 has arrived with a lot of improvements and fixes. We will share how to download Java 10 offline installers for all Operating Systems and then install the latest version of Java.

Java 10 Control Panel
Java 10 Control Panel

What’s new in Java 10

Introduction of var keyword

This is especially for developers. Now developers don’t have to define the variable types explicitly. They can use the var keyword and the compiler is smart enough to judge which type is defined in the variable contents.

There are a few limitations though. The var keyword only works for local variables and doesn’t work for other types like array, method, constructors etc.

Garbage collector improvements

Java 10 improves on garbage collection as it uses G1 as the default garbage collector with parallel full garbage collection mode enabled by default. This will improve memory leaks and overall system performance.

Application class data sharing improvements

Application class data sharing improvements should improve the overall loading time of Java applications.

Single repository

Java 10 consolidates the 8 repositories into one for ease of use and functionality.

Javah removed

The native header generation tool Javah has been removed from Java 10.

Heap collection

Heap collection on alternate memory devices.

Startup times

Java 10 enables shorter startup times in JShell REPL.

API improvements

API for creating unmodifiable collections.

Multiple stylesheets

Java 10 supports multiple stylesheets in Javadoc.

While most of the improvements in Java 10 are geared towards developers, a normal user of Java JRE10 should see improvements in application loading and performance while running Java apps.

At the time of this writing, the complete version number of Java is Java 10 security baseline 10. This is set to expire on 17th May 2018.

Check installed version of Java

My preferred way of checking Java version on any system is by going to command-line and type java -version. When I was installing Java 10 on my system, the system didn’t recognize the java command even though Java was showing as installed in Windows Control Panel. I had to restart Windows after which java -version command started working fine.
