How to send large files via email

how to send large files via email – sending large files in email attachment by making small size multiple files using WinRAR- password protection in WinRAR.

We send email in our daily life. Sometimes, we need to send large files via email. For this purpose we use attachment files during email composition. But problem is there, every email sending website (Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, Hotmail) have data attachment limit.

You can send messages up to

  • 25 megabytes (MB) in size via Gmail and yahoo.
  • 10 megabytes (MB) in size via Outlook and Hotmail.

These limits are for complete (message + attachment) email. We can only send emails of above size freely. So, to solve this problem we can use WinRAR multiple files option. Mostly we use WinRAR for file compression. This also have option to make multiple compression files of one file. For making multiple compression files, you must install WinRAR. If you not have download this from Download WinRAR.
