Mavericks broke my MS-OfficeX so I have acquired Numbers, Pages, etc.


However, I cannot send Numbers documents as attachments via gmail. 


Excel attachments go fine, but Numbers attachements result in a message from gmail saying..


Cannot send message using the server*****


Sending the message content to the server failed.


The server response was: This message was blocked because its content presents a potentialsecurity issue. Please visit to review our message content and attachment contentguidelines. dq11sm25404689wid.3 - gsmtp


Select a different outgoing mail server from the list below or click Try Later to leave the message in your Outbox until it can be sent.


Sending from: “*******” <*****>



I can send other attachments, so why is Numbers being blocked?


Thanks in advance.

    Number files are actually zip file.  If you review the link Google provides you will see there is a whole list of items you cannot send.  The best way to share a document is to use a non-gmail email address or dropbox (or something like that)
