These days, high-definition video recordings and high-resolution photographs are easier to make with smartphones and other affordable gear. While great for personal creativity, some people may be seeing more of that old “This file exceeds the attachment limit” message from their e-mail providers when they try to share the files privately with friends. To help users send files larger than the usual 10- to 25-megabyte limit, Google, Yahoo and Microsoft have all melded their Web-based mail with online storage services.
Those with Gmail accounts, for example, can insert attachments stored in their Google Drive accounts — and share files up to 10 gigabytes in size by e-mail. The Official Gmail Blog has instructions. People using Microsoft’s Outlook.com, as well as Outlook or the Windows 8 Mail app, can similarly link files stored in their SkyDrive accounts, as Microsoft explains. Yahoo Mail users can share files larger than 25 megabytes by using the newly integrated Dropbox online storage, as explained on the Yahoo Mail blog.
