Compression format files (such as .rar, .tar.gz, .zip, .gzip, or any other archive file) will be stripped from e-mails if they contain an .exe file or another potentially dangerous file type.

In lieu of sending large attachments and potentially exceeding the quota of your mailbox, consider using the FSU Dropbox Service
