How to access Mail Drop and to use it's feature? If you are confused about the Mail Drop feature, read this article to know about Mail Drop and how to access or use it.
Mail Drop comes in handy whenever you need to send an email attachment that is larger or exceeds the email size limit. With the help of Mail Drop, you can send large files up to 5GB at a time.
Mail Drop is an extraordinary Apple feature that lets you send large files, such as videos, presentations, or bulk images directly from your Mail app. This feature comes available with devices, such as iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Mac.
You need an iCloud account to use the Mail Drop feature because Mail Drop uploads your file to iCloud instead of sending it directly to the recipient over email.
The recipient has 30 days to open it once you send an email with a large attachment using Mail Drop. If the email recipient fails to open the email within the period, the email will not be available to view. In this scenario, you need to resend the email again using the Mail Drop feature.
Mail Drop has one more limitation: you are allowed to send files up to 5GB. But, you should know that you have a 1TB storage limit on your iCloud account. Once the storage is full, you need to wait for some files to expire and free up some space.
You don't have an option to select the Mail Drop feature immediately while sending an email. When your Mail app detects that your email attachment is too large to send, it will ask you to send those attachments using Mail Drop. So, here you are allowed to opt for Mail Drop.
If you face any issues while sending a large email through Mail Drop, make sure the Mail Drop feature is enabled. Follow the below instructions to enable the Mail Drop feature.
