FileCap sending files through a laptop

Sending large files via e-mail can be a challenge, especially if the file size exceeds the limits of traditional e-mail providers. By using FileCap, you can easily email large files up to as much as 5 terabytes (!) to yourself without worrying about limitations. Other benefits of using FileCap to email yourself include:

  1. Secure file transfer: Securing confidential information is crucial, especially when you are emailing files to yourself.
