Send PDF Files

Many businesses work with and send PDF files every day, but these files can be difficult to work with when it’s time to share them with coworkers or people outside of the company. Often containing hundreds of thousands of pages with images and text, PDF documents can become very large. This poses a problem when these files are sent via email. Email attachments are often limited in size to only a few megabytes, which means that any larger PDFs have to be zipped or even sent via a different method. Further, PDFs may include personal or company information that should not be shared except between the sender and intended recipient. These files need additional protections and should not be sent as plain text attachments.
