    Post Why Zimbra increase messages size with attachments ?

    Hello,

    I saw that when I send an email with some attachments (let say a 5MB zip file), Zimbra show me a mail size of 7MB ?

    What are thoses 2 MB ? I thought it was a bug with outlook, but trying to send the mail within Zimbra is the same.

    Is is just a display bug, or really, each mail I send is increased by "I don't know what" ?

    Running Zimbra 7.2 64Bits on Ubuntu 10.04..

    I suspect it is the difference between the real size of the attachment, and the size of the attachment when it is base64 encoded (or whatever other method might be used) in order to make it 7-bit so that it can pass through the worlds email systems unchanged.
