I was wondering with the data exports if they should be added as an attachment to the email if they're less than 10MB?

Different email hosts have different limitations on attachments, as well as how much free space you may have left for your inbox etc plays in here.

There's just too many "what if" scenarios when sending files of any size, it's better for us to avoid that altogether, as such I'll wontfix this. If there's a compelling reason why it should be done despite this, please do feel free to re-open.

We might be able to prevent all sorts of "what if" with this approach?
