Overcoming Email Attachment Limitations by Automatically Separating the Sender’s Email Message into Multiple Messages with the Attachments Spread Across Them

Problem:

Some email applications limit the maximum attachment size, but a user needs to send more than that limit in attachments, and cannot or chooses not to use an online share for it.

Solution:

When the overall size of multiple email attachments causes the limitation to be exceeded under the attachment limits of the email application(s), the sender’s email client should automatically create multiple emails to the same email recipient(s) without user intervention, spreading the attachments across the emails to allow it to pass the limitations.

Furthermore, if the both sender and recipient are using the same or compatible email clients, the client side could recombine the incoming multiple emails into a single email body for a seamless user experience.
