Sending large files to other people on the Internet is a problem. If you send something bigger than 3Mb to someone with dial up or 20Mb on broadband you can end up locking up the recipients Inbox for an extended time and they may even think their computer has crashed. It can lock your machine up while you send it, and lastly increase the size of your and their mailbox dramatically ending up with problems such as corrupt mailstorage in Outlook and Quota Limits being hit and no more email being received in the recipents mailbox.
There is a solution however, called www.yousendit.com that allows you to send attachments up to 1000Mb by sending it through their service which hosts it temporarily on a website for 7 days and simply sends a link to the recipients email address.
