Its considered rude-and rightly so -to email someone a file larger than a few MegaBytes without a permission.And you may not be able to anyway,since many ISPs place a acap on message size (10 mb or less).So what are you to do if you need to send an 18 MB an 80 MB or even an 800 MB file to someone ?Online services make the task much easier and more elegant than burning a DVD and dropping it in the mail is one of the best on the market now .The free service requires no registration and it allows unlimited maximum file size,maximum downloads and multiple simultaneous downloads.The other services however also have certain unique features that make them more suitable for you.
1. 300 MB files through a Web based interface without registration file expire after 45 days .Register and you get your own FTP subdomain ( thats accessible with a standard FTP client.It has a 1 B file sie limit.

2. - Has a 1.5 GB file size limit and stores files for 90 days .A $ 4 monthly fee gets you a 2.5 GB size limit.
