Problems with attachments?
One of the biggest problem Windows Live Messenger used to have was amount of bytes you could send as an attachment in a mail, and even nowadays this can be a pain in the ass. Sending big files was almost impossible to accomplish, and even today, if you want to attach a file to a mail you’ll have big size-related problems, sometimes being unable to send a file by attachment to a mail and ending up uploading that file in a server, which requires even more time.
But if you’re having troubles sending big files by mail, we may have some tips to help you, since the problems about attachments to a mail are quality, not quantity. Here are some good tips to send big files through mail:
• The limit per file is 10 MB, so if you have a file that pass that limit by 3 or 4 MB, you can compress it using Winrar, you’ll end up with a compressed file that’ll fit a mail perfectly.
• If the file is way bigger than that, you can split it into multiple files, sending many in just one mail, or send them in different mails.
• If you’re having troubles sending a movie, splitting may be impossible and compress it will risk it’s quality, so making a .rar out of it and then splitting may be the best choice.
• You can also upload that movie to Skydrive, something that’ll save time and will be a lot easier than compressing and splitting the file.
As you can see, a problem that in the past was almost impossible to fix can now be fixed in a matter of seconds, and you won’t even have to worry that much of methods to send a file by mail.
