Send large attachments from Outlook

We have discussed previously how to send larger files easily using the YouSendIt service. The collaborative website drop.io which allows you to share files via the web, email, and mobile devices have introduced a plugin to Outlook which makes the process of emailing large file even easier.

Once installed, the drop.io Outlook plug-in adds a ‘Attach Files with drop.io’ icon to your email application. This adds the attachments to the email in the standard ‘Attached’ box. You send the email to the recipient, however the attachments are not embedded, they are uploaded to the drop.io service. The recipient receives your email with the option to view the files online or to download them.

It is free to send files up to 100MB; larger files can be sent by upgrading to a professional account.

Drop.io Add-in beta for Microsoft Outlook can be downloaded here
