Does your ISP or webmail choke you off when trying to email a pal a large email attachment? Well, there's good news for you. You can now offer your pal the option to download the attachment from your third party cloud storage service using Thunderbird's Filelink option. It's very COOL! I think it's been in the last few versions of TB, but I didn't notice it till today. I've been distracted lately.

Anyway, I linked my TB to use my Dropbox account, which requires an extension be installed. However, if you use one of the TB provided options, you won't need to install an extension, just sign up for an account at one of the supported services.

Ain't technology wonderful?! :)

"Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain." -George Orwell, 1984

Yes, very nice. And you can also use You Send It for Thunderbird as well. Also works with Postbox as does DropBox.
