There are several services online that let you send large files over email. I have used almost every service. Today i am going to tell you about the best one.
If you email a file directly from your inbox then there are limits.
For example Google's service Gmail just allows you to send attachment of 25 Mb. To send large files Via Google you have to use their google drive service. First upload and later sent the link.
Here i am talking about sending files straight from email without uploading them any where else. For this purpose my favorite service is FILE MAIL.
It has following benefits.
Large File Space limits
Every service i have tried online gives attachment limit of 100 mb, 200 mb, 1 gb and the highest i had for free was 10gb.
Filemail is giving the maximum space than other and that is 30-gb for free. No one else is giving this much space for free but if you think this is also less then you can upgrade your package in 9 dollars per month which is cheaper than others. But before you buy you can have a trial of a month for free.
When you are sending files for free the options you get for security purpose are Password protecting your files availability. Availability means that you can put limit for how long the file should stay on the server. In free version 7 days are default but you can increase the days in Pro version.
You will be notified when the person downloads the file you sent.
Note: According to filemail Security Option and Delivery tracking mentioned above are shown not to be available in free service but i have used it all the time for free so ignore the plan and we are not sure how long is filemail going to keep it that way.
Not Limited to Email
The article is about how to send large files over email but when the upload is done you are also provided with a link which you can send to others so they can download those videos too. Actually the person you are emailing will receive the link and from that link he can download files you sent.
The interface of the site is awesome and it used Html 5 to upload your files. It will show you the time remaining and the speed on which the files are being uploaded and the percentage of upload progress. I think that is all you need when you are sending files straight from the browser. * I uploaded 100 Mb in 15 mins at 85 kb/s*
Apps and Plugins
Filemail also provides you awesome Apps and plugins through which you can send files straight from your desktop, Outlook, Thunderbird, Iphone, Ipad etc. They also have created a small application by the name of filemail Receiver that automatically downloads files that other people send you. This means that you can immediately access these files locally on your harddrive/server - without having to download the files manually from the Filemail servers. But sadly thsi filemail receiver is only available for business customers.
Large files Branding and Emails
With business account you can also integrate Filemail Uploader and also place the Download Page on your own site. It is like providing users with file sharing service from your site. This means that you will use filemail but highlight your service and brand.
Filemail provides several connections on a single file being downloaded which makes the download faster. What i mean by this is that when you will download a file the down-loader will connect several times with the file from different parts and each connection will download specific part and when all are downloaded the software combines the downloaded chunks it makes the download faster and not every one provides this service. I use Internet download manager for downloads.
