According to the Filelink privacy review:

"Initially, attached files larger than 1MB trigger a prompt that suggests the File Upload feature to users. This can be adjusted.

Risk: users may encounter this dialog more than they want and start uploading files more than necessary (especially smaller documents that should be kept more confidential.)

Recommendation: To minimize potential for unnecessary use, we should increase the trigger size to be closer to the attachment limit for most SMTP servers. 5 MB is a common attachment limit for SMTP servers. "

I need to make the point here, that one of the most used freemail provider in germany, web.de, has an attachment limit of (only) 4 MB.
