Sending files through email

Warning: Do not attempt to send a file larger than about 10MB through email. It may bounce back or it may cause the recipient's mail spool to fill up. Also be wary of emailing .zip files. Because many viruses distribute themselves in this format, they will often be rejected. Small .tar.gz files (the Linux equivalent of .zip) should be OK to email, however.

Please consider using zendto to send large files.
