Which type of files Gmail doesn't allows to Send? [Complete List]

For Security reason Gmail doesn't allows users to send and receive some file types(such as .exe)  to through Gmail. Someone asked me in mail what type of files Gmail does not allow to send. For that I searched in Gmail help pages and got the answer of my friend question. 

Here below table I shared with you for which type of file email doesn't allows. 

Extension Type Developer
.ADE Access Project Microsoft
.ADP Access Project Microsoft
.BAT DOS batch file Microsoft
.CHM HTML Help file Microsoft
.CMD Windows Command Microsoft
.COM DOS Command File N / A

Gmail won't accept these types of files even if they are sent in a zipped (.zip, .tar, .tgz, .taz, .z, .gz, .rar) format. If this type of message is sent to your Gmail address, it is bounced back to the sender automatically.
