Friday, October 02, 2009The daily routine to send something to a user via email It becomes increasingly difficult these days to send an email with an attachment. Different email servers implement different filtering techniques for emails with attachments. Especially for support this is quickly becoming frustrating, both for the sender and the receiver. The sender does not know whether an email actually arrived at the receiver or if the email was answered or if the answer simply didn't arrive. A solution is to no longer send the file as attachment but to make it available as download and just send the download link. Now, while convenient for the receiver, it quickly becomes a repetitive annoying and error-prone task for the sender:
- Locate the file
- Open an application to connect to an FTP server
- Remember the corresponding hyperlink to send in the email
The FTP server information must be configured once by starting the application and clicking the "Configuration" link.
The file can also be uploaded to the FTP server by "drag-dropping" the file on to the icon.
After uploading the file the link is copied to the clipboard. Free download of our FTPUploader app Under the motto "eat your own dogfood", we uploaded this free little useful utility to an FTP server. You can download it at this hyperlink pasted from the clipboard: http://www.tmssoftware.net/public/FTPUploader.zip
