Using email to send large files can cause headaches for the recipient and the sender. It could be a painful experience.
- Files too big so they can’t be attached
- After a long wait it sending is possible that the email can’t be sent
- The recipient does not receive the email
- The email is misplaced
- Sometimes it is necessary to split the attachments in different emails due to the size, and after organising the attachments in the emails you realised some emails can’t be sent.
- Bounced emails
- Hours of frustration with connections
