Sending big files is no longer a problem with “YouSendIt!”

Ever need to email a file? I mean a BIG file, like a powerpoint, a high resolution photo(s), a pdf file, or audio/video file, but it keeps getting rejected by the receipients email because the file is too big? How frustrating this can be...

The problem is now solved with and is easy as A-B-C.  Yousendit is a web based service that protects the security of emailed documents but is an intermediary that allows you to upload the document to their server. The servicesends an email to the receipient on how to pick up the document and viola! It saves the receipcient from getting a jammed up email inbox too.

I have a lite account which allows me to send up to 100 MB, but you can sign up to send 2GB if you need to send bigger files for a small fee.

Try it next time you need to send a big file!

Tried using this but with my 64-bit operating system there was an incompatibility issue.  Wish it weren't so!

HELLO MICHELE!  First of all - hope the "baby" is doing well!  And you too!  This was great information - I too have a 64 bit system like Kirsten - but I may try it with my other computer.  It sure would help with the big photo files!  Thanks for the tip! -- Gabrielle

I have used this in the past and still have the plug-in for Outlook. It seems that I utilize other web based services that I no longer send such large files as to still need this service. Definitely handy for the rare occassion that I do need it.

it works great -- for those larger files that have trouble going through from or to others email boxes -- it is worth it and it integrates with Outlook easily
