Imagine spending days preparing a client presentation that runs into hundreds of megabytes. It can be frustrating when after cross-checking everything and hitting the “send” button on your Outlook or Gmail, you are greeted with the message, “File size too large.”
As much as you’d like to believe it, email accounts can’t store that much data, and email service providers do impose size limits on the attachments, impeding your ability to do business. For instance, Outlook allows you to send a maximum of 20MB for every email attachment for all versions, while with Gmail, you can share files up to 25MB in one go.
When this happens, your first instinct is to either break file attachments to reduce the size to comply with the size limits or look for easy file transfer options like cloud storage services. While the former option is time-consuming and practically infeasible, the latter option is fraught with several challenges. For instance, when senders send a shared link to a recipient through a cloud storage service, they might have questions like:
If you are not thinking about these issues and are sending large files from your main cloud storage platform, you should!
What if you never have to worry about opting for an external cloud storage service and send large files securely without leaving your standard email interfaces like Outlook or Gmail? RMail, a global email security solution from RPost, addresses these challenges head-on with its built-in, LargeMail™ file transfer feature. The fastest way to send files, RMail allows you to send large files up to 1GB – without leaving your email interface.
Not just one but a range of benefits:
RMail’s secure File Share service enables you to easily send large files and track the opening and downloads. You can securely send big files up to 1GB per send - right from the Outlook interface (and more!), or by using the RMail API as a shared link to your recipients (that they can download) with optional passwords.
Sharing large files is a simple two-step process within RMail:
Once you have transferred files, your recipients will get your message with a shared link to download standalone or shared files. You can optionally add passwords or other encryption levels for privacy.
RMail’s integrations with several platforms offer even more convenience for secure file sharing.
