Google won’t send RAR attachments

Gmail blocks numerous file types primarily to stop virus attachments. Users can’t attach EXE, DLL, DMG, VB, CMD, BAT, JAR, VBS, JSE, PIF, VXD, JSE, APK, INS, SCT, MSI and other file formats to emails. So you can’t attach programs, scripts, software installers and batch files to Gmail emails.

Gmail doesn’t block the ZIP and RAR archive formats. Thus, some Gmail users are surprised a “Blocked for security reasons” error message appears when they try to attach RAR files to emails.
