Send large email attachments with Docstoc Oneclick


Docstoc OneClick is an easy way to e-mail large documents, without attaching files. Instead of emailing files as attachments, you can send large documents as links to all of your contacts. The documents can be viewed and downloaded from Docstoc, allowing you to send large files with ease and confidence of receipt. With OneClick, simply right click any large document(s) to instantly send files to any of your contacts via email.Both sharing and viewing Docstoc OneClick documents require registration for a free account at Docstoc.

Right now Docstoc OneClick is Windows only, but a Mac version is coming soon. There doesn’t seem to be a way to configure OneClick to work with a web-based email service like Gmail or Yahoo! Mail. So when it launches an email Windows, it will load up whatever Windows thinks is your default email application, which might be Outlook, Outlook Express, or Thunderbird.

Docstoc OneClick doesn’t work with all file types, just documents like Word, Excel, or PDF files. You cannot upload media files. File transfer service YouSendIt offers a similar application, but without the limitations on file types, and with a higher file size limit. But the advantage to using Docstoc is that users can view documents without downloading them.
