Configuring Filelink

To use Filelink, you must first create a new account (or configure an existing account) with an online storage service provider.

   At the top of the Thunderbird window, click the Tools menu (ALT+T) and select Options or click the Application menu button New Fx Menu and choose Options .
   Click on the Attachments panel, and choose the Outgoing tab.
   Click the Add button.
   Select the desired service provider from the drop-down list.
       Choose Box, click Set up Account, or click the Get a Box account… link to create a new account. 
   Click Set up Account to continue.

Filelink sounds like an exploit, and may not be valid anymore. A simple fix is to use 7zip or it's equal, and compress the file(s) and then send the now smaller file. Or you could use other tricks. They take a long time to set up though. It involves multiple programs and I would not suggest it to someone who doesn't want to spend a week figuring out how to do it. That said if you want to create an infinite email/cloud/encrypt/free service. You can find them but, even I do not bother. Cheers
