Hi,guys,
I need to send an important large files to my customers, but it's large so that it was rejected by email. Anyone knows what should I do?

Archive it and split it, then send it in pieces.

A torrent would be a good idea if you have a few people in it with you or if you have a high speed connection.

Whatever happened to using FTP.. AKA File Transfer Protocol. Upload it somewhere, send them the link in the email.

If you must put it someplace accessible via HTTP, send them the link, remove in a day or so.

(Btw, this is more for the people giving off-the-wall suggestions than the OP. If the OP doesn't know he doesn't know, no harm, no foul. But torrent!? Splitting the archive!? YEECH! Bash wrap? And if his client(s) is on Windows this helps how!?)

The only reason I suggested torrent was because it would be a free way to do it. It would use all of his bandwidth if he did this himself with a home server. Multiple seeds would be a good solution to this.

but if its a file that only those two care about, no one is going to be seeding it.

and ftp wont kill all of his bandwidth. no more then torrent would. just upload it to a ftp somewhere.

My thoughts exactly, FTP is great. You could also run a FTP server on your own pc if need be.

The are loads of free online storage places you could upload to and email the recipient the link, eg yousendit.com

Think they have a 100meg file size limit and links are time limited, (7 days) there are many others most of which offer a free option.
