Answer

GMS Webmail allows any number of files of any size to be added to mail
messages as attachments. If GMS Anti-Virus is installed, each file is checked for
viruses first too.

GMS Webmail will warn users if the attach a file of ZERO bytes in size. This
is an alert that they may not have selected the file correctly in the
browser. When a user types in the full filename (rather than selecting it
from a list) they may mis-spell the file name. Some browsers will happly
deliver this non-existant file to GMS! Of course, because it doesn’t
exist, it will have a size of ZERO bytes. Therefore Gordano added the
warning to alert users that they may have typed the file name incorrectly.
