How to Send Large Files Via Email

I love my Dad, but we have the same argument every week on the phone. He wants to attach videos through email, even though they’re huge. I keep trying to tell him not to. Sending large files through email is considered to be bad netiquette! But, of course, there are times when you may need to send things like a PowerPoint presentation or other large file via email. What do you use to make this easier?

Filemail allows you to send up to 2GB of files at a time through your email. All you have to do is upload your files directly to Filemail. They are stored on servers located in either San Diego, or Norway. An email is sent to your recipient(s), telling them they have files ready to download. There is a clickable link within the email. Once they click the link, they are taken directly to the download page that was created when you uploaded the files. After a certain number of days, the files are deleted off of the Filemail servers.

You don’t even have to register, or pay anything! If you have to send a file over about 5MB, then you need to use this service. They even have a corporate level, for large companies who need to send large files. If you sign up for a corporate account, you will have a dedicated corporate upload box.

Don’t send any more large files! Now I can stop having this argument with my Dad!
