FilesAnywhere(TM) ''Attach Link'' Brings Unlimited-Size Email Attachments to Outlook(R)

Share Article

FilesAnywhere.com announced today a new add-in for its clients that utilize Microsoft Outlook(R) messaging software. This new add-in permits users to email file attachments directly from Outlook with no upper size limit. Since no files are stored on the email server, recipients of emails benefit by being able to view the files immediately online, without waiting for a download. This new file delivery method is available to all FilesAnywhere users, including free 1GB storage accounts.

Attach Link has given our staff a simple, effective file delivery solution that works extremely well. The transfer performance is excellent and the interface for viewing the sent documents really appeals to the email recipient, especially since no setup is required to view and download the files. This really solves the problem of needing to get large documents to clients in a timely fashion.

    FilesAnywhere's Attach Link adds value to businesses, saving on email storage costs and conserving valuable resources on email servers. It offloads the file storage to FilesAnywhere, instead of embedding files within email messages. FilesAnywhere received praise from Fortune 500(R) customers who used the beta version last month.

"Attach Link really increases our satisfaction with FilesAnywhere," says Matthew Petrich, Director of Legal Business Solutions at Duff & Phelps in Chicago, "Attach Link has given our staff a simple, effective file delivery solution that works extremely well. The transfer performance is excellent and the interface for viewing the sent documents really appeals to the email recipient, especially since no setup is required to view and download the files. This really solves the problem of needing to get large documents to clients in a timely fashion."

The new "Attach File Link" button is added to the main toolbar in Outlook.

Attaching multiple files of unlimited size is just as easy to use as regular file attachments. Emails sent using Attach Link contain a web link to the actual files, which are hosted securely on FilesAnywhere, instead of being included inside the email message. This creates a solution for standard email attachments, which normally get rejected because of the large size, and can clog up email servers.

Sending and receiving files also is enhanced as follows:

-- Recipients can download files or view file content directly online, compatible with all image file formats and popular file formats;

-- FilesAnywhere tracks when files are actually viewed or downloaded;

-- Senders receive reliable confirmations instead of read-receipts, which are unreliable;

-- Senders can password-protect the file link, and all file transfers are done over a secure connection, solving another problem - traditional email is normally not secure.

Another advantage of this hosted file delivery method is that you can update files in real-time on FilesAnywhere, so recipients always have access to the updated files, even after the email is sent. Advanced options include: an expiration date, access limits, a custom watermark on image pages, and a downloadable file history log.

Beyond working with Outlook, the add-in also is accessible online from the FilesAnywhere.com website and mobile devices like the iPhone(TM). From the website, users can email links to entire folders and the feature is available for Mac(R) users as well.
