    gmail doesn't like exes in attachments: https://support.google.com/mail/answer/6590?hl=en
    Just upload it to some filehosting and send the link.
    Or did you mean something different?

    Not only exes. I noticed problems when I´ve tried to send .RAR or .ZIP file. I resolved it via altering the extension i.e. file.exe.SUBOR
    Please hit the "THANKS" button under my post if its useful for you.

    Gmail won't let you send attachments as 7zip/7z either anymore.

    For a while they did up until about 2008 or 2010. Then after 2010 they made it to where you can't send 7z and other attachments anymore that they recognize.

    Google screwed me over royally when they did that, because I sent 7z compressed archives of important documents to myself via email as a time capsule for cloud storage when needed again, but now Google refuses to let me download the attachments that were already sent to myself because it was blocked later!

    Google basically traps the data you send to yourself by email this way, making it inaccessible if or when they ban the attachment type.

    If I didn't still have a local copy of what I saved and compressed but can no longer get to, I'd have lost the data permanently.

    Plenty of reasons to still never trust Gmail or any other form of cloud storage.

    Best way to share files long term is to have your own http or ftp server. Next best way is free file host. Never Google, Google Drive, Dropbox, or anything like it. It will disappear or be refused read or download later whenever others want.
