Gmail said: "No ZIP file"

Tonight, I was trying to send an email with a ZIP attachment to my friend. But suddenly Gmail told me:

Sorry, for security reasons, Gmail does not allow you to send this type of attachment.

What?! Security reasons? I'm not a spammer nor a computer virus... :-( I didn't give up and tried some other popular formats like Tarball (.tar) and Windows executable (.exe). Well, as expected, they failed.

Luckily 7-ZIP is not blocked! :-D Gmail should seriously consider NOT to block any attachment. Otherwise, please block it in a smarter way. ;-)


Note that troll and spam comments will be deleted without any notification.
