2Large2Email – Easily Transmit Large Email Attachments
Sending large attachments by email can be problematic, they can be held up for any number of reasons including being rejected due to size restrictions and being rejected due to mailbox size limitations. They also use up valuable storage space in mail archives. One alternative is to burn the attachment to CD and deliver it by post or courier. Burning files to CD can be slow, time consuming, costly and prone to physical medium errors.
Instead, it can often be beneficial to send large attachments using a dedicated file transfer service – 2Large2Email is one such service.
2Large2Email describes itself as “…. The simple way to send large files around the world, or next door.”
A free 100MB per send service is available from 2Large2Email and for larger requirements a number of paid plans are available from 500Mb to 2Gb (single file size). Included in the free plan is a 7 day storage period, 1GB total upload and send per month limit, password protection, and up to 3 downloads per file.
Signing up for the free plan is straightforward, simply enter your name, email, time zone, and password together with a unique web address to identify your download site.
