3 Ways to Send Large Files Via Email

If you are a regular user of e-mail services, then you have probably run into a myriad of problems when it comes to sending files. As technology has gotten better, e-mail service providers have gotten much better, more intuitive, more efficient and faster. But, there are still problems that come up occasionally if you have ever tried to send large multimedia files via e-mail. If you have ever received the same “file attachment error” message, then you are probably more than aware of the gig byte limit your particular e-mail service provider has. When you receive that particular error message it almost always has to do with the size of the file that you are sending to a recipient. An easy way to look at it is as an overstuffed mailbox. When a mailbox is overstuffed, it makes it much more difficult to send and receive mail.

But, there are more than a few ways to send large files via e-mail, and some are more effective than others. Here is a short list of some of the best options available via email service providers today:

#1. You Send It
This versatile web application makes it possible to send files with a maximum of 100 mb in size, which is quite substantial when compared with the limits of most e-mail service providers. With this You Send It service, there really is no such thing as “too big to send.” It is really as simple as that. The software is completely free and is compatible with many of the most common e-mail service providers. For example, You Send It can operate just as a simple Microsoft Outlook plug-in, but it is technically a stand along program. Either way, it is one of the best, most effective and simplest ways to send large files via e-mail.

#2. SugarSync
This e-mail add-on for sending large files gives its users 5 mb of free space, and then charges extra according to how much more space you want. What is great about that is it means you can tailor your plan to meet the specific needs of the files you want to send. In many ways, SugarSync is just like Drop Box, except it offers more free space than its more popular counterpart.

#3. WeTransfer
WeTransfer is extremely easy to use and navigate and offers up to 2 mb of free space to its users. It is perhaps the easiest large file e-mail service on the market and is actually very fun to use, as the design is top-notch. You can really tell that a lot of thought went into it.
