SendThisFile releases plug-in application for Outlook users
SendThisFile速 today is announcing a new plug-in for Microsoft Outlook 2010 email users. SendThisFile's plug-in enables Windows users to send large files directly from Outlook email program without having to switch to a different program or website.
"The Outlook plug-in we are providing extends our service beyond the web and into the world's most popular email program," said Scott Sexton, SendThisFile's Vice President of Business Development. "Businesses and Enterprise-level customers are heavy users of Microsoft Outlook, and need an easy way to send large files on their established platform."
To reduce costs, many companies and Internet web services limit the size of email attachments. Due to the nature of email, file attachments are duplicated on file servers for each person receiving the file. For instance, a one gigabyte file attachment is emailed from one person to two others, three gigabytes of storage on an email file server are consumed. Without email file attachment size restrictions, email file servers can quickly fill up, compelling a rapidly growing need for more file storage and staff to manage the expanding network.
SendThisFile saves its customers from having to use up their valuable bandwidth, storage and support personnel resources to manage their file sending. SendThisFile users upload files which are temporarily hosted on secure SendThisFile file servers, which can then be used to download, providing an affordable and secure way to send large email attachments and files.
The Microsoft Outlook plug-in provided by SendThisFile automatically detects a large file in an outgoing email, uploads the file to SendThisFile, replaces the file attachment with a download link in the original email, and sends the email to your recipient(s). While the file is uploading, users can monitor the file upload completion status. Other Outlook plug-in options include download receipts, and email templates.
"Our plug-in gives Windows users complete control over their file sending experience in Outlook 2010, Microsoft's latest version, and provides the same great features that our users expect," said John Stephens, SendThisFile Vice President of Operations.
The Microsoft Outlook 2010 plug-in is available today on SendThisFile's website at www.sendthisfile.com
