What makes this tool great?

Hightail is a Web-based secure digital file delivery company, which lets users securely send, receive, and track files on demand.

It is an alternative to sending large e-mail attachments, using FTP, and sending CDs or DVDs or tape or USB flash drive via Sneakernet. The sender can enter the recipients' e-mail addresses, attach the file, and send it; the recipients receive an e-mail notification with a URL that lets them download the file. The company operates on a 'freemium' basis, with basic features being offered for free and more advanced features for a fee.

Hightail has more than 23 million registered and 500,000 paid subscribers from 192 countries/territories. Sending a file up to 50 MB in size is free; paid accounts can send files up to 2 GB.
