The Superior HighTail Alternative

Faster Transfers, Bigger Files, More Storage Space

HighTail alternative to share files using any platform

HighTail, formerly YouSendIt, is an established file transferring service. They like a notable few others in this space, have chosen to expand their offering, from file sharing to collaboration. Of course some may welcome these additional tools.

But, if you are looking for a solution focused on providing a fast secure file sharing service, without the bloat of features that bring nothing to this table, then Filemail is a more apt solution.

Why We Are Better HighTail Alternative

Send Files Faster

FTP & HTTP are TCP based transfer protocols that can't match the speed that UDP based transfer protocols provide. At Filemail we created a custom UDP based transfer enabling transfer rates up to 200 times faster than TCP.

Client Testimonials

John Sullivan (SouthEast Bee Supply)

We make VoiceBooks and short documentaries here in Finland. Filemail dot com is defenately a very reliable route to send files to our clients all over the world... and quite affordable, too ;)

Fabio Dondina (BlueWin)

I have been using Filemail for several years with great satisfaction. It is a very fast service, especially with the Filemail Desktop application, both for uploading and for downloading. Furthermore you can easily upload files over 2 GB and the localization in Italian makes everything easy and immediate. 

James Lott

I have been using Filemail for about 5/6 years now and it beats the competition as large file sizes are no problem. i first use the free service then signed up to the annual subscription, which they gave me at a fair price, their customer service is excellent too.
