Can anyone give me a few ideas on what program allows you to send a large attachment…Or maybe what email server? I want to share my ebooks with my friends but I do not want to put them on the internet yet..Some pdf files are nearly 100mb????February 24, 2009 at 8:10 am #31267
You can split files into smaller pieces, send them as multiple emails, then reassemble the pieces. There are many free software applications that can do this.. one of them that i have used before is Filesplitter.. you can download Filesplitter via the link below. Filesplitter can use windows copy to reassemble these files, or can generate an .exe file which will do it for you.. either way, the recipient need install no software to reassemble it, and this software works on any kind of file.Alternatively, I am pretty sure Outlook Express can also split and reassemble files? I'll get back to you on that one.. I dont use Outlook but I'll check it out.. I am pretty confident it will do it though...Another alternative, and this obviously doesnt apply to everyone, is that if you have your own website and so does your recipient, then you wont hit the email size limitations.. in your website control panel you will be able to set any limitations.

Outlook Express has a facility for splitting files and reassembling them in the recipientâ€™s inbox. The person receiving the file must also be using Outlook Express or an email program that also has the facility.You can set Outlook Express to do this automatically:1. Open Outlook Express and click on Tools. Open the accounts section and select your email account.2. Select Mail, then Properties, and click the Advanced tab.3. Youâ€™ll see a box with the words â€œBreak apart messages larger thanâ€. Put a check mark in the box and enter the maximum file size in the KB field. 1Mb is a good size for email.What Outlook Express will do when you want to send a 20Mb file, for instance, is to break it into 20 separate emails each with a 1Mb attachment, and these will be reassembled when received.

I use 7-zip to compress the files. 7-Zip is compression software to compress the files 100mb to 10 Mb. I compress the large files and then send it through email.April 26, 2013 at 11:56 am #31271
If you want to send attachment more than 100 MB then I suggest you email.biz email provider because it provides more than 100 MB attachment. Check out this email provider. Email.biz
