It happens to everyone. When We try to send large files by email and it turns out that it is either too big for our email service, or the recipient’s account is saturated and does not have enough space to save or receive it.

The recipient will receive an email with the message text and a button for downloading the attachments. If you have attached multiple files for sending (photos, document, etc ..), the recipient will receive a compressed .zip file with all files/attachments.

Instead of sending the file by e-mail, you can also get a download link that looks like this E.g ( if you want to share it on social networks or send it to many people for easy access.

The only limitations of wetransfer free service is the limit in sending email attachments, up to 2 GB in each shipment and that the file will only be available for download in 7 days, after which it will be deleted automatically from the server.

They also have a paid version that allows you to attach up to 10Gb per shipment/attachment and can store files as long as the sender want, but the price is (10 € monthly).
