Thanks for the folks at JKOnTheRun for bringing this new fact to our attention!  One other small item worth mentioning too about GMail, it uses SSH, an encrypted connection to send and receive email.  If you are a physician using a service that does not encrypt, perhaps Yahoo or any other web based email system, think about Google for sending any sensitive patient information.  GMail can also be configured to work with Outlook once you allow POP3 in the overall settings.  They also offer a couple other web based suggestions for sending large attachments below.  BD 

Gmail_logo Please try not to send me any 20 MB attachments, but if you do, you can now use Gmail. The (unofficial) Google Operating System blog says that Google's Gmail service just increased the attachment limit from 10 MB to 20 MB, which ought to make most e-mail clients choke twice as fast now.

While it's nice for Google to raise limits at the e-mail poker table, here's an alternative to sending those large attachments: try either the senduit or MailBigFile services. These freebies allow you to upload and store a large file for a pre-determined length of time up to a week. You get a URL for the file which you can then e-mail to a bud in lieu of the large attachment. This gives your mobile pal time to get to a faster or wired connection for the quicker transfer. ;)
