When you need to receive large files from customers, we’re talking hundreds of megabytes using email is no longer an option.
In this scenario, you could use File Request Pro to build an upload page or form and let your customer drop your big files on it. All your customers’ needs is a modern browser and good network connectivity
Why is there a maximum email size limit
Obviously, if you send an email that exceeds the maximum email size limit of the recipient’s email provider, your email will bounce off and you will receive an email error back in your mailbox
Usually, the limit depends on your email hosting provider but keeping your attachments under 10MB is a safe rule for most emails.
How to receive large files from customers
- Describe your file requirements. If you need a black and white PDF with the information displayed, you will need to say so to your client. Avoid unnecessary back and forward and save everyone time.
- Use a reliable internet connection. Ask your client to use a stable connection to avoid any interruption that results in data loss. This is important if the file is bigger than a few hundred megabytes.
