Top 5 Cloud-Based Services for Sending Large E-mail Attachments
Sending large e-mail attachments was never easy, with most of the e-mails servers not accepting attachments larger than 10 MB. However, with the integration of online file storage tools, the problem has been solved to a larger extent. The modern-day online file storage tools allow you to send across gigabytes of attachments without clogging up your inboxes or running you into size limits.
Let’s take a look at the top 5 cloud-based file transfer software that come to your rescue when you think of large file transfers:
Google Drive-Gmail Integration
By combining its e-mail service with a cloud storage solution, Google has made the job of sending large attachment files a lot easier. Now, you can attach files as large as 10GB directly through the Drive Cloud Storage and embed them into your e-mails. The files that you want to send across will not be attached to your e-mail; instead, they will be saved in your Google DriveÂ account and the recipient will receive a link through which he can download the attachment on his computer.
Microsoft SkyDrive is an integrated feature for Hotmail and Outlook.com that lets you attach one or more files that are above 25MB in size. SkyDrive lets you access your photos, documents, and other important files right on your smartphone, tablet, PC, or Mac. SkyDrive also includes stripped-down versions of Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint that will allow multiple people to work on the same document at the same time. Even on the accessibility front, SkyDrive is the only service that’s officially available on Windows Phone.
This file transfer application comes with additional advantage – it allows you to password protect your files and documents for enhanced protection. It also offers Chrome Extension that integrates with Gmail to help you easily upload the file. However, the only limitation with TransferBigFiles is that the files are available for download by a recipient for just five days.
DropBox is the most popular and the easiest way to store, sync, and share files online. It offers 2GB of free online storage space with up to 100GB space for paid customers. DropBox allows you to create and send links for files and folders that you want to share with your friends by dragging and dropping the files into the Public folder.
Though the File Dropper Â program is not integrated with any e-mail client, it still allows you to upload up to 5GB of files that you want to send across through e-mails. A link will be generated for every file that you upload, which can then be send to the recipient through mail. However, if the files are not downloaded within 30 days, they get deleted from the server.
Take the advantage of these cloud-based file transferring software and simplify your e-mailing experience.
