Looking for help with your list?
Mailchimp lists are now called audiences. They include the same data and functionality as before, along with valuable new insights about your contacts. As we introduce this change over time, you’ll notice fewer places where we still say list. Learn more about this change.
Mailchimp offers free file hosting so you can add a file to an email campaign and share it with your contacts. You can upload and share many types of files including images, documents, spreadsheets, audio, or video.
In this article, you'll learn how to upload a file to an email campaign and share it with your contacts.
Before You Start
- We offer file hosting instead of traditional email attachments because attachments can slow or stop bulk email delivery, or cause security software to completely block your email.
- File hosting does not support zip files containing unsupported file types.
You can upload many types of files to your Mailchimp account, and share them with your contacts. Each image file should be approximately 1MB or less, and other file types should be 10MB or less.
