One of the main concerns of users when using electronic messaging services is the following: – Can I send large files as attachments? Different email providers offer different attachment restrictions. Gmail allows files up to 25MB as attachments, Hotmail and Yahoo allow 10MB. To send larger files, users must upload files to a file-sharing website and then share the URL with the recipient.
The new version of Outlook.com provides a seamless experience when adding files. While you can still attach attachments up to 10 MB to the email itself, for files over 10 MB up to 300 MB, it now offers an easy way to send them – with SkyDrive! With SkyDrive, you can now share individual files up to 300 MB – or hundreds of smaller files – in a single email!
Suppose you write an email in Outlook.com and attach a file. If the file size is less than 10MB, it is attached.
If this is not the case, you will be gently met when sending files with SkyDrive. If you click this option, you can select the large file from your desktop and upload it to SkyDrive.
Once the file is attached, Outlook adds a line, … has a file for you on SkyDive. To see it, click on the link below.
The recipient, when they click on the link, is directed to SkyDrive, from where they can download the large attachment.
The great thing about this feature is that you don’t have to leave the email you write, and it’s so convenient to use that you don’t even notice you’re using another service.
Downloading large attachments can take a long time – and it depends on your Internet speed.
