    The problem here is that you cannot send binary files directly through email. They must be "encoded", typically in a format called Base64. This is done automatically by your email program. The issue here is that encoding is not a 1:1 correlation, but rather closer to a 1:1.5 correlation. That means any binary file you send in email is automatically 1.5x larger than the actual file on disk.

    You can read more about it here:

    Why are emailed attachments larger than the original file?
