Message attachment size limit

How can I change the attachment size limit for messages? I'm trying to attach a 3MB file but it doesn't attach and there is no error message. I can attach 500KB just fine. I've read about the "Limit Attachment Size" plugin but I can't seem to find it in v8.

I have the same problem. Links below don't work. I don't find this app for Odoo 8. Ideas? I would like to attach 2 or 3 Mb files when I send sale order by email. Thanks

I'm on v8 and searching in the apps menu for "attachment" or "attachments" yields no results.

It appears the Apps store is no longer available at v8 for unregistered users - that menu take you straight to the Installed Modules menu. You can still manually download and manually install the module - search this site for any of the MANY questions relating to how to install modules without using the Apps menu.

I use Nginx.

I solved this problem adding this new line in my nginx.conf file and restart Nginx.
