“You Send It”

There must be a dozen times in the last year that I've wanted to email someone a large file, but couldn't because it would overwhelm their mailbox. Voila! Here is You Send It!

If you haven’t heard about it, you can use it to “email” very large files. You upload the file to the site, tell it the email addresses to send the file to, and the recipients receive a link that allows him or her to download the file. The maximum file size is 1 GB.

You cannot send multiple files in one email, but you can send a zip folder. Only a free version of the service is offered, which allows a single file to be downloaded 25 times over seven days. Oddly, you are allowed to send a file to up to 50 people. I guess only 25 of them may download it.
