How to send large files via email

Whether it’s sending that hundred-slide PowerPoint presentation, dissertation, or multiple files, email is the easiest way to send materials for immediate use. However, many email providers have limits on file and attachment sizes for security purposes, making sending large amounts tricky. But luckily, there’s a workaround (well, a few actually). With Spike, send files in a snap directly from Google Drive, Dropbox, and OneDrive. 

Another option is to use Spike Notes to share large files.


To attach Cloud access to your Spike account on Mobile: 

  1. Swipe right to view the left toggle.
  2. Below your accounts, and under the ‘Add Account’ option there will be a ‘Cloud’ icon.
  3. By tapping this, you will enable cloud service integration.



To attach access on your desktop application: 

  1. Click the plus icon on an existing message. 
  2. Scroll down to the Add Cloud Account section. 
  3. Tap the type of cloud account you want to add. The options are GoogleDrive, Dropbox and OneDrive.
  4. Enter your login details and you will connect your drive.


Sending Files

Once you’re all set up, to send files with your drive or DropBox: 

      1. Enter your existing email or create a new one. 

      2. Tap the cloud icon above the message. 



3. Choose the Drive you connected. 



4. Send that file 


Sending large files and previewing attachments has never been easier. Spike streamlines your workflow so all it takes for you to conquer your day are a few simple steps.
