View email attachments
The Email attachments folder contains files larger than 25 MB that were attached to any email (incoming, sent, deleted, or draft) in your Yandex.Mail mailbox. When attached to an email, they are automatically uploaded to Yandex.Disk. These kinds of files are stored on Yandex.Disk because the majority of mail services don't accept emails with files of this size.
All email attachments take up space on your Yandex.Disk, sync with the Yandex.Disk folder, and are available in mobile apps, just like any other file. You can't attach files if there's not enough space on Yandex.Disk.
If you move a file from Email attachments to another folder, the recipient of the email can still access it. However, if you disable the public link to this file or delete it from Yandex.Disk, the recipient won't be able to view it.
A file is missing from “Email attachments”
If you can't find an attachment in the Email attachments folder, it's most likely because the email with this attachment was sent before 2020. Such files are stored in the Archive. You can only access them through the Yandex.Disk web interface.
