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
