In the Gmail webapp there is a 5MB file size limit.

Attaching a 5+MB file to an email gives the message:

This file exceeds the 5MB
attachment limit. Sorry.

This is not specific to the webapp, the webbrowser-app has the same "limitation".

Trying various UA string did not help. The 5 MB limit might indicate a default size is hit.
