The Superior HighTail Alternative

Faster Transfers, Bigger Files, More Storage Space

HighTail alternative to share files using any platform

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.

Why We Are Better HighTail Alternative

Get past HighTail's limited downloads by using Filemail

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.
