5MB Maximum for Attachment File Size is extremely low

Please up your maximum file size for attachments (documents & photos). Currently you cannot upload a file larger than 5MB to attach to an email which is extremely inconvenient when you have well-designed trainings with multiple screenshots. Even after compressing my 13 page training it was 5.7MB, still too large. A simple Gmail account allows you to upload attachments that are up to 25MB, so only allowing for 5MB is very low. It's even more frustrating because our company is only using 9% of it's total available space, so there's plenty of room available for a couple larger attachments.

We used to be able to upload one file for our newsletter that was just under 10MB. Now we have to split it up into smaller size documents which is not only inconvenient but looks unprofessional coming from an organization such as a Chamber of Commerce. We would all greatly like to see the 10MB file size restored!

I check my file size before uploading. I just tried to upload a 2.9mb file. Then an error will appear saying the file is over 5mb. How can we fix this?

Files error size received and it's tough to have to divide lists into subsets so that all contacts can be uploaded.

Limiting Excel files to 1 MB and text to 1.4 is silly, and new with this current redesign. It's 2013 for pity's sake and the best you can handle is a 1 MB EXCEL FILE?? Why the step BACKWARD?

Trying to download a holiday flyer from my computer and it is discouraging that it wants me to re-size it! other programs are much more acceptable!

I am wasting major time since your new list management system will not upload a file I downloaded from your system. I pared back the list size but still had major difficulties. I have had to call your CustServ reps multiple times and was told the new system can only upload a single sheet XLS file which creates BIG issues for me as I sort by client type and state and cannot upload with mini-files. It should be like before and your system reads first tab only!!!! Please fix these bugs ASAP...call if need further explaination...R.Schoper 770-740-9979

Previous version was much more user-friendly, easier, faster, etc. I'd prefer you allow me to upload a file larger than 1 MG - like we used to be able to do. Forcing your customers to segment their lists isn't always a good option for every organization. Our database has about 16,000+ people with emails. forcing me to separate our Excel file into tiny parts is time-consuming and not helpful, since they will all go into one Contact List. In addition the uploading of the new emails is super slow - - about 10 times slower than the previous way we uploaded from a fie. BRING BACK THE OLD WAY FOR FILE UPLOADS!!!!!!!!

Please help me. I need to upload a contacts file that is larger than 1 MB.
Participant
When you changed your contact management format, a simple spreadsheet that I use to upload has had to be broken into 5 separate spreadsheets in order to get the contacts uploaded. This not only an inconvenience, but it is a terrible time waster! Not at all satisfied with the new format!

I never had any problems with the number of records I would from our member list. Today I have had to split the member list into member levels in order to upload these lists. What has changed? There is a possibility that I will miss a member category doing the list like this. Thank you . .
