The limit on incoming emails on Plusnet is 100MB - the problem is more likely to be at his end.

If your account with PN has web space and it not being used you can transfer files by ftp at ftp.plus.net

Providing he gives his friend his Plusnet account name and password - not the best idea in the world!

Could go to http://tinyurl.com and generate a url linked to ftp://user:password@ftp.plus.net this way his friend will not know the account name and password.

You could sign up to Dropbox https://www.getdropbox.com/install
This will keep up to 2GB of files on a PC synchronised with remote versions.
Allows you to give a Dropbox URL for the location of a file.

Re: Email receive size

Or if your friend has his own webspace he could upload it there and send you a link. We do that all the time at work for sending bigger files.
