Sending large files between two parties can always be problematic given the limits placed on attachment sizes by ISPs and Webmail services. Typically, the only solution is to burn files onto CD.
The process is as simple as entering the recipients email address, and selecting the file to be sent. The speed at which the recipient is able to download the file from the remote server is of course dependent on his or her connection speed. Similarly, the faster your connection, the quicker the file will be uploaded to the servers.
1. Dropload (100mb file limit)
Dropload is a place for you to drop your files off and have them picked up by someone else at a later time. Recipients you specify are sent an email with instructions on how to download the file. Files are removed from the system after 7 days, regardless if they have been picked up or not. You can upload any type of file, mp3, movies, docs, pdfs, up to 100MB each! Recipients can be anyone with an email address
2. YouSendIt (1 GB file limit)
These free services should prove particularly useful for many.
