Weight Diet for Outlook: how to send large files by email without annoying your contacts
What's the problem about sending large files in emails?
Most email servers have a maximum size limit set for files attached to incoming emails. If a file attachment is too large and it exceeds the size limit, the email server will reject that email message.
On the other hand, even if your contact doesn't have a maximum attachment size limit, put yourself in this position: isn't it annoying when you are receiving a very large email and you have to wait a long time to receive and read the email? Maybe you don't even want to deal with the file attachment at that time, but you have to wait for it to be downloaded before you can read the email message.
How can you avoid to send large files by email?
What if the file attachment would be replaced by a simple download link inserted in the email content, so you can choose if you want to download it or not, after you received the email? What if this process would not require any additional steps from you?
This is exactly what Weight Diet for Outlook does: after you attach your files to an Outlook email and you are about to send it, Weight Diet will offer to automatically upload the attached files to a file sharing server and replace the actual file attachment with a download link. It is so simple!
Moreover, you can define filters so Weight Diet will only convert large files to download links if your file size is larger than a pre-defined value or if your files belong to a defined set of file extensions (like .exe or .avi).
Basically, Weight Diet helps you to send large files by email, without having to actually send the files by email, as it replaces your large files with download links. Also, given that the web (http) protocol is much faster than the email (SMTP) protocol, it is anyway a lot faster to upload your large files to a file sharing server, instead of emailing them and having your recipient(s) to wait & receive your large email.
