Email and executable files

How to send executable files.


-  Email is definitely not the media to send executable files

 Why? - Many site (we too) qurantine Emails with executables due to security reasons or even block them
- The size of attachements in emails is limited. Wie limit at 20 MByte, other sites have mor stringent
restrictions. - The Alternatives: - If you want to transfer files from home to univerity or vice versa, just use _scp_ or the up/download features of our webmail server. - If you want to transfer files to external users, please use the DFN gigamove service, or our ownCloud service. - if you need a file from external user, please use gigamove, as you can request files through it (there will be an upload URL created).
