How many times has this happened to you: You need to send a large file to someone and their email system rejects the large attachment. Perhaps because it is a free provider and they have a limited mailbox size or perhaps because it is a corporate email with strict limits.
If you are anything like me, then this problem happens periodically. Interestingly, I find that the issue happens more due to work restrictions than personal email restrictions. Fortunately, I have recently run across an excellent solution. I have started using a service called “Mediafire“. This is a free file uploading service that lets you upload your file to their site and then instead of emailing the file, you can just email a link directly to the file at Mediafire. This bypasses all of the email limitation nonsense since your email only contains a URL. Best of all, the service is free and provides an unlimited upload capacity.
I have been using Mediafire for a few months now and can say that I am very happy with the service. It works reliably and I highly recommend it to anyone trying to send large email files or even to have a temporary location to protect important files.
