this is rather offtopic, but, yes, files sent by email are
enlarged by four thirds because of the way they have to be
encoded (this is also true for e.g. messages in mostly Asian

So you can say 7.5 MiB * 4/3 = 10 MiB, plus the message itself
and some metainformation, which is a couple of KiB, can already
be too much.
