    Can anyone tell me the best way to send a large file? It was originally 44mb. I used DropStuff to make it 13mb. I tried to email it in gmail, but it just stalled. I tried to upload it to my host space, but I don't kow how to make it downloadable for my friend.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks!

    gmail only supports emails up to 10MB. i'd recommend sending it to them via AIM or iChat, if you can. that should work pretty well.

    I'd set up FTP and have your friend FTP into your box and take it.

    So far, I was able to load the compressed version of the file to YouSendIt. Now I just have to see if my friend can get it. For some reason, it would not let me upload the file uncompressed, even though it's 44mb and the limit is 1g.

    Anyway, thanks very much!
