Why Email isn’t Enough to Send Big Files

If you’ve been using an email service to send big files to your clients, you should know that you have other options for sending large files to other people. An email service may not always be enough for businesses, especially when it comes to handling large files.

Time is the main factor to consider when sharing files through an email service. You need to wait for a long time before you can attach a large file and send it.

How big is ‘big’ anyway?
You may have heard about certain email services which allow a maximum attachment size of 25MB. While this may seem enough for you, you also have to consider the email client used by the recipient of your message. If the recipient uses an email service that has a lower file size capacity, there is a big chance that he or she will not receive your email because his or her email client can’t accommodate the file size that you attached in your message. Your email would only bounce back.
