i have a recurring problem where i need to send a series of pdfs (for instance) and i package up two or three pdf's at a time into a zip file and send a series of zips via mac Mail.


inevitably one of the bunches comes back immediately and i have to chop it down again.


then about two to five hours later i get another kickback with another series of emails saying one or another of the emails did not get through.


assuming i am working on methods to /upload/ the files and then send a link to them - is there a way to AUTO-MAGICALLY zip up a series of files into a set of zips that are UNDER a certain pre-proscribed amount of data or is there alternatively some WIDGET plugin that would do this for me automatically when i send a mail?


i'd love to get any expert advice on this even if it is to say that it is not available.

    sending big attachments via email has always been a problem.

    You can research third party software but it will never be an easy and quick.


    There are better ways of doing it these days i.e. by using free dropbox where you upload your large pdf files (no need to zip) and share them and just send the link to the email address of the recipient.
