The email has become the primary tool of professional communication. We use it to send from a simple message to a meeting reminder, a summary of that meeting or a long text document, attached directly or attached.
But although the email has improved a lot, to send large files it still falls short, so we usually upload that content to Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive or similar. Another option, if we want to give it a professional touch, is to go to services such as WeTransfer, which allow you to customize the download page and have a time limit to download that shared content.
