    E-Mailing Large Files

    Never quit sure which forum to post some questions in but as use Win 7 I'll try here.

    Does anyone out there use XoomFiles client software for sending large files? Does it work well for you? Would you recommend it?

    Thanks for any input.

    I have no experience of that application, but if you don't need encryption, you might take a look at hosted services such as Box.net or Dropbox, which have public folders that you can share with people. They also get around the problem of sending zip or exe files which are often blocked by the ISP.

    never used zoomfile, however I use free online storage to send bigger file, my favorite is 4shared and skydrive.
    hope it helps.

    Most email servers restrict attachment size to save bandwidth. The limits vary between providers but you are generally safe below 10MB. After that a quick search will show plenty of free services for sending large files (e.g. YouSendIt).

    cheers, Paul
