What’s the fastest possible way to send a large file?
That's the question we asked ourselves back in 2008.We checked all the solutions out there, but all of them... sucked. So we quit our jobs and created Filemail.
It's a free Web app where – without registration or login – you simply select a file, type in someone's e-mail and click 'send'. The recipient gets a link and downloads your file. That’s it!
People loved this simplicity. Today, we have more than 200 000 users who send up to 800 terabytes of files each month. Many of them liked our service enough to take up paid subscriptions or flexible business tariffs.
We now have servers in USA, Europe and Asia to make file sending just as smooth all around the world. We have also developed software plugins, desktop apps, mobile apps and a kickass API that can help you get your work done.
Why do people love Filemail?
We realize there are many ways to send files on the Web. But our users have discovered that Filemail:
- Is faster and hassle-free compared to sharing via cloud drives
- Is simpler than uploading to file hosting services
- Offers much higher file size limit than e-mail accounts
- Doesn't force people who receive your files to register anywhere or install anything
- Integrates seamlessly with popular e-mail software
- Offers better transfer speeds than other free services
We use Filemail to send contracts and tenders. The download tracking works a lot better than the old fashioned Read Receipts used in emails.

Oh, and our secret weapon?
Our team. The team is led by Stian Tonaas Fauske and Njål Arne Gjermundshaug – two friendly developers from Norway trying to make the web even more usefull then it is.
To this day, Stian and Njål listen carefully to their users and constantly develop Filemail to fit their needs.
Backed by great customer service that answers 96% of requests within 24 hours, we now have a small but extremely flexible team aiming to support Filemail for many years to come.
We also use the best tools, services, hardware, frameworks and development methodologies to ensure that Filemail is a kickass service.
Do you like it? Spread the word!
No matter what technology or buzzwords are popular at the moment, a simple and focused service is very often everything people need.
So far we have enjoyed tremendous growth relying mostly on word of mouth. That's why we hope you will find Filemail useful and recommend it to your friends!
