I am trying to find the best solution to remedy our inability to send large email attachments.  I have changed all our settings in our exchange server, so as each user can send up to 40mb files, however, a great many recipients of these emails never get the attachment, as they are limited on their end...
I am looking for the most reliable and secure software or online resource to help with this.  thanks

There are loads of online dropbox resources to allow a user to store a file online and send a link via email to access or download.  You need to trial several to find the best one for your needs..

As you can't really force other companies to change their email policy, have you thought about using something else for the file transfer like https ftp server and etc?
