DEADLY SIN #6 – SENDING LARGE ATTACHMENTS
The worst offenders for large attachments are pictures and PowerPoint shows.
There’s some simple things that you can do to avoid larger-than-needed file attachments.
The other method, which I like, is to use a free program that is just for resizing. Photo Gadget is free and very effective. Once installed, it creates an additional option on the right-click context menu of images.
You will be amazed at the difference in file sizes when they are resized this way.

PowerPoint Shows are another problem, big file sizes that are often just a recycled joke madder into a presentation. Not much you can do about the sizes, apart from if it’s you that creates the presentations out of jokes. If it is, stop it!
Finally, all those short video clips that get sent around. They are often big files, and most of them aren’t that interesting. Only send them if you really think the person on the receiving end is going to appreciate it. If it’s to me – ask me first!
Think before you send that huge file. Think about the person receiving it.
