Many e-mail providers allow users to send files through e-mail for free. But the catch is that there is usually a very small file size limit. Here is a way to send entire folders through e-mail using tools loaded with Windows XP and free web services. YouSendIt will send up to 100 MB through e-mail for free, while Pando will send up to 1 GB for free.

    Use Pando to send up to 1 GB of data through e-mail for free. Download and install Pando, then run Pando, and click the "Share New" button in the top left corner of the screen, and select "Email." Fill out the "To" field with the recipient's e-mail address. To add a folder, either click the "Browse" button, or just drag and drop a folder from the hard drive into the "Files & Folders" area of Pando. Type a name for the Pando package in the "Package Name" box. Then enter a subject and message for the email. Click on the "Passage Name" link to add a description for the files contained in the package. This will be the first thing that the recipient sees when the email appears in her inbox. Click the "Send" button in the upper left corner of the screen to send the message.
