    Hi guys, I do stuff for my church that causes me to have to send attachments that are large. Currently I'm trying to send a document with photos to another individual so they can print it up. It is 84mb. Both my email accounts stop me (Compuserve and Gmail) due to the size. Gmail has a 25mb limit.

    Can you tell me a email server that allows this? What do businesses do?

    Thanks,
    Trvlngnrs

    Get a free DropBox account and send them links from your public folder
    They can download from there without issue

    Dropbox

    You send someone an email and it links right to the Dropbox and thusly isn't encumbered by email sever limitations.

    Great idea, since I already use Drop Box. Unfortunately I keep getting an error page when I click on the "Public Link" Drop Box gave me. :(

    Is there another way?

    ftp site? www.yousendit.com? P2P (i.e BT)? Skype?

    Any of dropbox's competitors (iDisk, sugarsync, skydrive, ....)

    Why don't you tell this to Dropbox Support?

    mediafire.com or megaupload.com are both reliable sites.
