Sending Emails Step-by-Step Guide

This is a useful one if you ever need to email large files like MP3s, videos, presentations or uncompressed photos. Some Internet Service Providers impose file-size limits which stop you from sending files which are larger than a few MB's in size. This service overcomes that restriction by allowing you to upload your file to a secure area of their site, and simply email the link which allows the recipient to download the file.
