YouSendIt

How many times had you wanted to send very large files to someone and could not? Jim Edwards suggests using YouSendIt, an absolutely free service. No registration is required and it's secure. The service works like this - you use this service to upload a file to their server and give an email id of the recepient. The recepient receives an email from them, which gives a link to this file, stored on their server. You click on the link and download the file. Please note: They do not send the file as an attachment to your email. Do try it out.

I've been using it for quite sometime now :) Its pretty good.

However, for those in India, it still remains mission impossible because of the limited bandwidth.

You might also want to look at ImageUploader for doing the samething with images. However, with the advent of free services like flickr, services like that are history.

I also remember in the days of IRC, we used to have a "scratchpad" site where people could upload config files, source code or even arbitrary text files for discussing. I dont have a URL though (would appreciated if someone could remind me) :)

The service sure looks good but I doubt there would be many email services that are capable of receiving 1 Gb attachments.
