Sending large files via email.

 Sending a file using email is always a hit and miss situation, your provider may allow a certain file size, but will the recipient's provider allow the same size or smaller?
So to help with this issue, Arunalabs have created a service called Arunasend, what this enables you to do is send a file with a max size of 100Meg to anyone via email. The recipient gets a link via email which points to the file on Arunalabs's server.

With these types of services my concern is always about privacy, Arunalabs are working on a permission system for the service, but isn't there quite yet. So I wouldn't go sending off your Quickbooks
files or other sensitive info of that nature over it, but for helping clients out with patches, service packs etc, its ideal.
