I am trying to send someone a sound file over the internet. It is 17 MB and is too big for an email attachment, or google docs. It is confidential so does anyone know of a secure file sharer thingy so I can just let one other person access it?

You can attach at least 20 MB if sender and receiver both use Googlemail. Otherwise something like this...

Give this a whirl. It's a web site that allows you to move large files around and there's no need to register:

No, because it generates a unique URL for you files, which anyone can access (although only if they knew the exact URL address, rather unlikely). However, put them in a password secured zip file and email the recipient the password and the URL.

After a few failures I have managed to succeed with googlemail - which won't let me send so I am just letting the recipient have my log in details so she can go to my drafts/sent mail as it attaches but doesn't send it - stupid thing. I dont' use the account much so is a perfect solution - well nearly.
