Topic tags/keywords: resource tip e-mail files

As you may or may not know, e-mails are restricted, in the size, amount of information that you can send in an e-mail.
We can share pictures, and text, right here on LJ, but some other types of files such as PDF files, for plans and such, must be dealt with another way.
I have recently learned that with Google’s Gmail service, the size has been increased to 20 MB, I have tested this out myself with a 18 MB PDF file, sent to myself, successfully, through Gmail.
The size of e-mail is restricted by your Internet service provider, therefore when trying to send this size of file to my personal e-mail, it inevitably failed.
So if you want to share bigger files, set yourself up a Gmail account, and go at it.
In this way LJ members can share some bigger files, and they won’t have to give out their personal e-mail addresses.
This is a good thing to know, to be able to send bigger files in e-mail to anyone, anywhere, for whatever reason.
