I can't seem to get it to work. I try attaching a 50meg attachement and Mail will say in red how the file size limit is 35megs. Ive drag and dropped and use the attach file icon. Do other settings need to be set?

I've got 3.7GB. Not a lot admittedly but room for a 1GB file anyway. I'm holding off on buying more until I decide whether iCloud Drive is actually any use or not.

what? :eek: I need iCloud drive storage space to send a file bigger than usually email will handle. They didn't mention that in the keynote did they. They toted it like it was a whole new great feature they worked out that uses apples servers to deliver sizeable email attachments. **** they are becoming so crafty that at keynotes we'll need disclaimer voice overs next.

disclaimer : additional purchase necessary. service may not function as advertised.

I thought Maildrop was separate from your iCloud storage space as well. Pretty sure they said that in the keynote. :confused:

I've not to the bottom of this. All I remember hearing was "uses iCloud" and "up to 5GB per message". Haven't found anything definitive either way on whether it uses your iCloud storage or it's like Photostream and it's 'free' space.
