How to Attach and Email Large Files

Attaching and emailing heavy files is of a major concern. When there are separate files of large quantity, it is more convenient to zip the lot into one single file and send the same to the selected recipient/s.

Most of the email service providers today offer the services of file attachment up to a limit of 25MB. In case if you are wondering to know how to share heavier files through the Internet, read below to learn the different available platforms:

1. Google Drive: One can access Google Drive through his or her Gmail account username and password. It appears on the top bar just after Mail. While sharing a file or folder you just need to select it and put in the email address/es of the recipient/s on the required field and click on the Share button. The recipient/s will receive an email stating that you have shared a file or folder with them.

2. Yahoo! Yousend: Just like Google Drive, Yousend is also accessible through your Yahoo! email id. It appears on the left panel under Applications tab and click on Attach Large Files section. It enables the users to attach and email a file as large as 100 MB. However, the recipient will have to download it within 30 days of receipt, after that which will be automatically deleted.

3. SkyDrive: SkyDrive is accessible through Windows Live or Hotmail email id. This works just as same as the sharing process involved in Google Drive and the recipient is notified by an email.

Apart from these three most popular file sharing platforms, there are some other applications too. To name some of these are Bayfile, File Dropper, Sling File, and Your File Link.

All of these come with easy-to-use interface that can be operated even by a novice and supports file sizes ranging widely from 5 to 50 GB. However, one of the shortcomings of these file sharing platforms is that due to inactivity for a certain number of days the stored files get deleted.

Now as you got to know the different ways to attach and get your large files emailed to the recipients, all you just need to do is take advantage of this knowledge. Hope next time when you will be sharing heavier files, you will not have to face any deterrence due to the limitations of your email service provider.

    Thanks for sharing this info! I have not heard about SkyDrive before and now I’ve run across it twice this week! I’ll have to check it out. Have you ever used JSCAPE? They have a lot of paid products but they also have a free ftp client called AnyClient.

      You are welcome Alanna! 🙂

      SkyDrive offers an excellent service and I have used it personally. Currently I use Google Drive, which again I think is awesome. However, I am yet to use JSCAPE. If you have used JSCAPE or currently using it, please let us know your experiences with it. It would also be helpful for all of our readers.
