Send Large Attachments to ANY Email Address Easily

email | Send Large Attachments to ANY Email Address Easily Many times we need to send large files such as photos, some movie clips or some documents to a friend or family member. Most of the times it is not much of a problem because we send these files as attachments through our email account in case they are less than 20 MB in size (for Google for others it may vary). But what if attachment size exceeds the allowed size for the attachments? Also we are out of luck in case the recipients email account cannot support such large attachments, although the chances for the last scenario are much less but it still may happen with some older email accounts(I have a lean & mean Opera mail account still lying around).

Now SendAlong an online web-service comes to rescue. It allows to send large attachments to any email account through their web interface so you don’t even need to login to your own email service such as GMail etc. You can also specify a custom message that will send in email that will provide some context to the attachment you are sending. In practice data is stored on their servers and the email is sent to recipient with your message and download links. You can also specify a password for the attachments (and send the password in the message so that recipient can open the attachments).

Process is pretty simple just take a look:

1. Just like a regular email enter email addresses to send the files to.

2. Choose the files to upload.

3. Click to send.

4. Enter a password to protect your message(optional).

There are a number of packages available but a basic package is provided for free that will suffice to send attachments of up to 100 MB in size. Free package also has a cap of 1GB upload in a single month. If your requirements exceed these limitations you can also signup for paid accounts. Most expensive Pro account will allow to send attachments of up to 2GB in size! I think it is a bit too much and for most people free account should suffice.

There are some other limitations as well for example the data retention period that in case of free account happens to be 3 days. As the data is actually stored on their servers it has a plus point as well, that is you do not need to worry that your attachments may fill-up the email box of your recipient.

Just try out this service now and see if it is convenient for you.

    Hey, thanks for the great review of SendAlong! One little nit-pick is that the Pro account actually allows files up to 2GB in size, not just 1GB.

    Thanks for the well written review!

    Jon: I have corrected it thanks for the correction. :smile:

    Great, thanks again Jawwad.

    There are quite a few services offering the same and each has its own features. I had written about these few months back.

  • Rakshit

    Great find. I’ll definitely give it a try. Thanks for sharing that with us.

    You are welcome :smile: I always try my best to provide some thing that can be of some VALUE to the readers rather than rushing out reviews/news about everything here just for the sake of it.
