Hello BC,

I have been trying to send a video file (49.6 MB) as an Email attachment without success, using my Windows Live account.
A message appeared saying the file was too large and suggested I download HotMail Plus.

I have tried to resolve the situation via Googling HotMail Plus Download,but my SpyBot S&D Resident went crazy!!

Is there a secure download for Hotmail Plus that will allow me to send such large files?

Many thanks,

TerenceM.

Unless you really want to spend your money purchasing Hotmail Plus, use YouSendIt

You can use the Lite (free) version. You will have to set up an account to use the service. The receipient will receive a notice from YouSendIt letting him/her know you sent the file and it is available for download.
Let the receipient know that you will be sending him/her something using YouSendIt so he/she won't think it's spam.

Even if you were able to download/upgrade Hotmail Plus it costs $19.95/yr. It also is not able to send the file size you have a requirement for. "Send files up to 20 MB, twice that of regular Hotmail.

Your best and most cost concious method, is to utilize a file hosting service such as what Q-E has linked you to.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.

Hi Queen Evie and Animal,
Thank you for the advice, I have downloaded YouSendIt for future projects.
HotMail Plus would not have been suitable anyway.

Regards,

TerenceM.

Good catch by Animal on the size limit. I have to admit that I didn't check that out-all I did was verify that Hotmail Plus is the paid version.
