Email is not a great way to share large files. There are restrictions on how large of a file can be sent over email, and each email provider sets their own limits, which may not match your own or they may block email attachments entirely. To make it easier to share large files, Standard Mail now has a File Storage feature. You can upload a file and then use a public link to share the file with others.

To use this feature, select the File Storage ribbon on the left hand side.

For added security, a password can be used. Type in a password and check the box to the right to enable it. Checking the box for Enable public access will provide a public URL, or website address that can be given to whoever needs to download the file. Click Save to complete.

File Storage Set Password

When that URL or website address is typed or copied into a browser, it will ask for a password if one was set.

Once the password is entered, or if there is no password, a link will become available from where the shared file can then be downloaded. Click the link to download it.

It is a good idea to delete files that no longer need to be shared as they will take up space on your mailbox.
