I just tried to email a couple videos to a friend and it took several minutes to attempt to send them and finally a few minutes later I got a message saying the the remote server would not accept the email because it was too large.
So....I looked at the help section in my email program, Thunderbird, and it suggested the following sites for transferring large files: Hightail or Box. I attempted to register for Box, and after I completed the online form it said that it was going to send me an email to verify the account..........and it never did send the email. So much for Box!
So, next I tried Hightail, and I was able to register and login, but when I tried to send files, the button that normally says "Send Files" converts to say "Upgrade to Hightail Pro". Because I don't want to pay for Pro, I did not click and therefore the files were not sent. Seems like this is a deliberately sneaky way to operate!
So I am now looking for some recommendations for other sites that will do the following:
- allow me to send large files when I email my friends
- be free
Or, is there a better way to accomplish this.........perhaps just zipping the files and sending them that way? I wanted to avoid having the recipient take the trouble to unzip the file, if possible.
All comments will be much appreciated.
