Everyone will have received an email at least once, and more likely several times over the years advising that the email and accompanying attachment they have just crafted and fine-tuned has been rejected owing to the recipients mail server file size limit – or perhaps your mail provider limits you to some unusable file size restriction.
Email protocols were never designed to handle large messages containing multimedia attachments – however almost on a weekly basis I am contacted for advice on how to send large emails/attachments. The solution is simple – wetransfer.com.
WeTransfer ‘like to keep things simple’ and simple is exactly what they do. With no registration required you can send up to 2GB in one go – or register for a pro account and send a humongous 10GB at a time.
Simply visit WeTransfer.com, enter your recipients email address, your email address and a short message then it’s just a case of either dragging and dropping your files to send or using the handy file browser to select your files – that’s it. Click transfer and you’re done!
No jammed outboxes, no gobbledygook system administrator emails and better still – no complaints from your recipient that you have clogged up their mailbox as WeTransfer simply sends them a link to your file(s) ready for them to download at their convenience on their preferred device! (Files are automatically deleted after 7 days giving plenty of time to download)
