How can I email a large file?

Question

So far I have amassed a very large (35 MB) file of Genealogy Data on my PC. My nephew is very interested in the data that I have collected and I would like to send him a copy of this huge file. We both are using Ultimate Family Tree 3.0

I believe my AOL E-Mail system has a file xfer limitation of 2.5MB.

Is there a WEB Site Service that will allow me to transfer the file up to it and from which my nephew can then gain access and transfer the file down to his system?

Thanks for providing a forum for us to ask questions.

The easiest thing to do would be to invest in an external zip drive They hold either 100mb or 250mb, are portable and provide a backup/archival option for the data I don't suppose you would like to have to recreate all 35 mb

You can use some free web space providers to host this large amount of data but unless all parties involved have some type of high speed internet connection you're looking at about a 5-7hr download over a modem for a 35mb file.
