Dear colleagues - send a link to the file not the file itself
By christophersaul on Feb 20, 2007
It's great to receive interesting information encapsulated in large PDF or StarOffice files. All interesting stuff, that helps me do my job better. However, sending this fascinating content as an attachment means that all of us in the field who are not lucky enough to be enjoying a highspeed connection to the internet have to wait for ages while Thunderbird downloads the file. If we're particularly unlucky we have to stop and restart Thunderbird, which is a waste of time.
We have an internal site that can be used to post files so that you can send a link to the file rather than the file instead. For the sake of my sanity, please start using it!
