Hello,

I'm trying to e-mail a 1.5GB file but am encountering size restrictions. Is there a way to e-mail a file this large (preferably free) ? Thanks.

You can not email a file that large. You have to go to one of the web sites that allow you to upload the file and send the recipient a link to it so they can download it. Or put it on a flash drive or DVD and mail it to them. 1.5 GB will take about 6hrs to upload at normal speeds.

just put it on a ftp server like suggested afhnk. and you can sen an email to the recipient with link and how he can do to download it from his side.

You could try to create a private torrent too:
