    what do you think of these? would you use them? with this first site you can send up tp 1 GB, if you give the checksum it should be OK. you could even encrypt it too

    he's another, you can send up to 100MBs. stays on server for 7 days
    Dropload
    http://www.dropload.com/

    rapidshare
    this one has up up 30MB limit, and will stay on the server for over 30 days as long as the downloads are still active

    uploadhut
    sizes up to 50 MB. will stay on the server if there are still people downloading the file

    I have send several 479 mb. files on gmail. ;) but it depends on the type of attachment as to how big it can be. The standard is 10mb's but like I said I have sent almost 500mb attachments

    Hi again iceni60,

    I've used Rapidshare and Yousendit often, and still do. Also Imageshack is great for Uploading pictures for accessing in many different ways.

    I have never had any problems with any of them.

    A question i've wondered about though, how long do the images stay on Imageshack ?

    thanks for the info. on Rapidshare and Yousendit, they are very useful. i have an account at dropload too.

    no idea about imageshack, i've only really started to use it abit more since i started not logging in so much (before i botherd learning about Opera's cookies and then i didn't login because i was away.)

    I use Yousendit and satisfy with it. But it keeps the files for one week or for 7 downloads I guess. Also imageshack is great for picture uploads and picture shows in forums.

    from what i have read once people find yousendit they stay with it. 7 days should be fine if you are just sending it to 1 or 2 people.

    Can i ask how did you manage this. Was it anything special you did when attaching the file.

    Thanks

    I attached three security programs and an antivirus suite, It sent pretty quick because of my cable connection but my friend on the other end with a slow DSL said it took for ever to download. It might have been since it was four seperate files? But they all went at the same time.
