Share Files of Any Size While Eliminating Email Attachments With SugarSync for OutlookSugarSync for Outlook Enables Users to Share Files From Any Computer via Links From the Cloud (October 18, 2011)
SAN MATEO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/18/11 -- SugarSync, the Cloud storage, sync and share company, today introduced SugarSync for Outlook, the easiest way for both individuals and businesses to share large files using the Cloud from within an email. With SugarSync for Outlook, users can easily:
- Share files via links from within an email, eliminating large attachments and saving email storage space
- Generate and share links to files from remote computers that are synced to SugarSync
- Backup all shared files to SugarSync from within Outlook
- Easily track the number of times a file you've shared is downloaded, and control shared files with the ability to disable SugarSync links anytime
- Rely on SugarSync to automatically share all files via links every time you try to send an attachment, or just when the files are too big
"Despite our reliance on email for communications, email remains an inefficient way of sharing files. In today's digital world, file size continues to increase -- and most corporate email servers limit the size of attachments, thus limiting what you can share via email," said Laura Yecies, CEO of SugarSync. "SugarSync for Outlook removes the barriers to what you can share via email. By creating unique SugarSync links for your files directly from within an email, SugarSync for Outlook lets you share files of any size, and even from any remote computer that is synced via SugarSync -- not just the computer you are currently using."
Eliminate Bulky File Attachments
Say goodbye to attachment issues from large files such as videos or presentations! Send files via lightweight SugarSync links instead, generated directly from within Outlook. The recipients of SugarSync links do not need to be SugarSync customers -- they simply click the link and the file downloads. And because you are sharing files via links instead of large attachments, you save email storage space, thus eliminating those annoying messages from IT telling you that your mailbox has exceeded its limit.
Share Files from Remote Computers
Want to be able to share files from all remote computers, not just the computer you are currently using? Any files on remote computers -- both PCs and Macs -- that are synced to SugarSync are available to you via SugarSync for Outlook, and can be shared with the click of a button.
Backup Shared Files Directly to the Cloud
Every time you share a file via SugarSync for Outlook, it is automatically saved to the SugarSync Cloud. Even if you select a new file that is not yet synced to SugarSync, SugarSync for Outlook will automatically upload the file to the Cloud in the background, giving you a reliable backup of all your shared files.
Easy Tracking and Control of Files
Easily view how many times your shared files have been downloaded, giving you insight into whether or not people are accessing your shared files. And in case you hit 'Send' too soon, you can easily disable any of your SugarSync links at any time. So even when recalling an email fails, you can ensure that nobody accesses the shared file by turning off the link.
Automatically Send All Files (or Just Large Files) via Links
SugarSync for Outlook lets you decide whether you want to automatically send all attachments via links, or just larger files. You can configure the SugarSync for Outlook plugin to automatically send all attached files via links, prompting the system to upload all files in the background and send as links. Or you can setup the plugin to only send files larger than a particular size, which you can define.
Pricing and Availability
