  1. You can try also MyAirBridge (www.myairbridge.com). Without any registration and totally for free you can send up to 20 GB

  2. Hi, this statement is 100% wrong: “There is no limit for attached file size if you are using Gmail or Yahoo Email to send an email.”

    First of all, the correct answer is 25 MB for Yahoo. Source: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN5673.html

    Secondly, the method you’re describing is not ATTACHING a file. You’re LINKING a file stored somewhere else. Which is totally different.

    You could have titled your article “How to SEND a file when it’s above the attachment limit” or something, and that would have been more accurate for the solution you provided.

    • Thank you for the feedback. The line you mentioned here is related to the second statement. “There is no limit for attached file size if you are using Gmail or Yahoo Email to send an email. Gmail and Yahoo Mail both integrated their email service with cloud storage and they practically took off the attachment file limit.” I hope this clear.

      After a couple of updates, Yahoo took off this direct cloud integration and we published a new article with updated features. Would you please refer the updated version of the article here: How to Send Large Files by Email for Free?

  3. I use to be able to send a 10 page contract with my yahoo email. Now it says its more than 25mb. I am going to have to change my service to do any work.

  4. I have been trying to figure out for over 30 minutes on how to attach 75MB file to an email to no avail, there is no ‘down arrow next to paper-clip’. Hopefully someone can show a video clip for clarity.
