Set the maximum email attachment size

You can restrict the email attachment size to conform with your email provider restrictions. This setting will alert you when a scheduled or generated report exceeds the maximum attachment size you enter in this setting.

If your reports exceed your email provider restrictions, consider setting up a secure file transfer protocol (SFTP) connection to one or more external Microsoft Window servers. This option allows you to deliver your reports directly to selected stakeholders in your organization.
