Most e-mail providers do not allow large e-mail attachments. Even if you can send large e-mail attachments, they often cause overcrowded e-mail inboxes in the long run. With the GigaMove service, RWTH Aachen University offers an uncomplicated way to send large files via a link. The files are uploaded to the GigaMove service via a homepage. Afterwards you get a link to your file and can send it by e-mail.

Prerequisites[Bearbeiten | Quelltext bearbeiten]

Register[Bearbeiten | Quelltext bearbeiten]
