What is the size of my mailbox?
You have 25 Gb of space available in your entire mailbox (inbox and all folders). To see how much space you are using, hover over your name (lastname, firstname) in Outlook.com. You will see how much space you are using and what is left.
How large of an attachment can I send?
You can send attachments totaling up to 25 MB each per email.
This means that all attachments to the email message and the text must not take up more space than about 25 MB. Large files and photos should be shared through OneDrive.
If you want to send something even bigger, you can try sending it in smaller chunks

Microsoft limits the number of emails sent from an account to 400 in a 24 hour period. There is also a limit of 99 recipients per message or per hour. If you send more than 400 messages (or to 400 recipients), you will be locked out and unable to send mail. You will continue to receive mail. This does not affect administrator-created groups (FT Staff, Faculty&Staff, etc). Those count as a single recipient. Additionally, you can send mail through Canvas without any ill effect.
