In a nutshell

The simplest way to use Filemail is through your desktop browser. Simply navigate your browser to and the first thing you see is some boxes with clear instruction to send files. Just write your friend’s email, then write yours, type some messages to greet them, attach your files (or drop them), and then send! But wait, not too fast.

After clicking send button, there will be a pop-box which will let you choose the validation/expiration date of the files before the receiver downloads it.

Besides the browser version, there is also desktop (Windows, OSX , and Linux) and mobile app version available. Download the app from Play Store (Android) or App Store (iOS) — ($2.99) and install it. After that, open the app, and you will notice that the transferring method is similar to the desktop version.

For the receiver, they will get an email notification about the incoming files, and then they simply need to click the link which will direct them to the Filemail site. There, the receiver will be given 3 options, which are "Download in Zip", "Download Torrent" or "Download With FTP". You can use Filemail Downloader to download largest file easier and you can automatically resume the transfer if the connection is dropped.

Size limitation

In addition to being free, Filemail lets you send as many files as you want. If you use the free version of Filemail, you have 30 GB limitation per transfer — which is actually super big already. But then there are paid options that let you send unlimited files.

Supported file formats

Filemail supports every format. Even if you want to send files which are not compatible with your desktop or phone, you still can send it. Furthermore, the receiver will get the files without any lost quality at all.

Free, Pro and Business options

If you want to use it for free, it does give a number of features. But if you want more exclusive services, then you might want to consider about buying the Pro version. And if your working place requires you to share files in large quantities to many people at once, there is "Business" version.

The Pro version costs you 9$ where you will get unlimited file size, up to 1 month file availability, password protection, enables you using Filemail Desktop and Downloader, and many more features. While the Business one costs 15$ per month.

Before you pay for the paid versions, you may try the trial version for free to experience it directly. So, you can think it over if the services prove no good for you.
