Sending large files by email? -> Send rather a link

Sometimes when I have to send rather large files by email (like Gmail for instance), I receive a delivery error because the file size is too large.

A great way around this problem is to store the file on the internet instead and just send the link to the recipient. Not everyone has access to a FTP server so the best service I have found dealing with this problem is by using Box.net. It is very easy to use and the service is free for 1 Gb size.

With Box, you can instantly share and send any type of file with family, friends, and clients including documents, photos, and videos that are too large for email. You can also access your files anywhere in the world. It is also ideal if you need remote access to your important files from multiple computers.

The service is completely web-based, so there is no software to download and install, unlike traditional remote access or online storage services.

You can try it out visiting box.net
