You Send It Got Better

You Send ItOne of my favorite online services is You Send It. It allows you to send large attachments via email. I have written about this service before. I have used the service to send discovery documents, pictures, and powerpoint presentations without having to worry about exceeding the limits on someone’s mailbox.

One of the great feautres is that the service has a plug-in that integrates with Outlook. This means that if I send an attachment that is above a certain size (I can set this size), then You Send It automatically kicks in and handles the file.

Another great feature is that there are many options available. They provide a free service that has size and number limitations (on both the individual message and over a period of time). They also provide pay services that include additional features.

Now You Send It has added an additional feature. In addition to the Outlook plug-in, they have a desktop application called You Send It Express that allows you to send and receive files directly from your desktop. They also have several other plug-ins that allow you to send large files directly from a variety of applications, including Adobe Acrobat, iPhoto, and Corel Draw X3.

If you have a large file to send to someone, you might want to check out You Send It.

I Heart Adriana

I love Adriana Linares‘ blog I Heart Tech. Her posts often contain the best tips. Her tips are so good becaue they are often very simple to perform, plus they are practical. Her latest tip is a tip for Outlook that I love. In her tip, she explains how to simulaneously view nonsequential days in Outlook. As she explains:

  1. Start by going to the Calendar view in Outlook, you’ll see (hopefully) a thumbnail view of the current month on the left hand side of Outlook .
  2. Press and hold the Control (Ctrl) key down as you click on the dates you want to view.
  3. The big Calendar pane to the right will change to show you only those dates.
  4. You can even select dates in other months by going to those months (see red arrow on graphic) and still Ctrl + Clicking.

This is so simple to do, yet it is something that never occured to me.
