GMAIL accounts are capable of sending and receiving a maximum of 25 MB per message. This means (with headers, encapsulation and encoding) that you can send an email message up to 10 MB in size.

Google does not allow executables, and quite a few archive-type file extensions:
said by GMAIL FAQ:
As a security measure to prevent potential viruses, Gmail does not allow you to receive executable files (such as files ending in .exe) that could contain damaging executable code.
Gmail does not accept these types of files, even if they are sent in a zipped (.zip, .tar, .tgz, .taz, .z, .gz) format. If someone tries to send this type of message to your Gmail account, the message will be bounced back to the sender.
