Faster Transfers, Bigger Files, More Storage Space
Filemail is a Hightail alternative focused on transferring files. Unlike HighTail, an established file transferring service, that has chosen to expand their offering, to include collaboration, we are focused on secure file storage and fast file sharing.
This focus results in no bloat of features that bring nothing to the cloud based file sharing table. With generous cloud storage and an easy to use user friendly UI, Filemail is an apt alternative to HighTail.
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.
On all HighTail accounts you are restricted in the number of downloads you can do. On all our accounts, Filemail permits unlimited downloads and recipients.
Certain file types are huge in size. In certain industries raw data can be massive. HighTail prohibits the maximum file size you can upload or download. Most of our Filemail accounts have no limit on the maximum file you can transfer.
We are focused on transferring files in a fast, secure, and reliable manner. We don't build surplus features that don't aid in our mission, which is to send your files as quickly and easily as possible.
File sharing and the transferring of data is common-place. Professionals and freelancers in a number of niches have to send files to clients and to each other. For this reason both HighTail and Filemail provide a personal account for individual users.
Let's see how the two options compare.
Where HighTail only lets you send a paltry 100 MB file, using Filemail you can send a file of up to 5 GB.
You know how it goes, you register and are constantly bombarded with lame emails. With us, you don't need to register.
Putting a limit on the number of downloads is an unnecessary hurdle that inconveniences users. We have no such restrictions in place.
HighTail does not offer anti-virus with any of its accounts. At Filemail, anti-virus protection is just one of our many shields.
With HighTail, you have to purchase an add-on in order to customize your subdomain. With Filemail Pro, customization is included, to ensure brand consistency.
To receive files with HighTail, you have to purchase an Uplink add-on. At Filemail, the ability to receive files is included with our Pro account.
Do you want to manually have to download files from trusted sources? With Filemail they are download automatically.
Trying to remember email addresses? You don't do that in your email client, and with us, you don't need to do that in your file transfer client either.
A business account lets you have many users under one account. The features offered by file sharing services under this type account vary, from shared storage to individual storage, to name but one criteria. You will also see that this account type is named all manner of things, such as business, or teams.
Let's have a look at the other criteria and see how HighTail compares to Filemail business account.
Use our simple 1-line HTML integration to permit visitors to your site to upload files directly into your account.
HighTail charges $24 per month per user. We charge only $23 per month per user. And we deliver benefits focused on file-sharing.
Restrictive files sizes means that you have to resort to compressors and file splitters. Forget the hassle, send a file of any size with Filemail.
HighTails delivery tracking is not as extensive as Filemails. You'll be in the loop as to who, when and from where, your files were downloaded.
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 ;)
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.
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.
