International Patent Application: WO/2007/133504 Inventor: Adi Gadwale

END USER TRANSPARENT EMAIL ATTACHMENT HANDLING TO OVERCOME SIZE AND ATTACHMENT POLICY BARRIERS

"Abstract: Email server side or client side components either remove email attachments from the relevant email, or identify the attachment while the email is being composed and makes the attachment available from a secure website or file hosting site. The recipient then receives instructions in the email and links to access the attachments rather than the attachments themselves. Email attachment size limitations are overcome for sender/recipient mail systems. Also, file type limitations related to email attachments are overcome, provides improved attachment security, and reduces email bandwidth costs."
