How to Email a Large PDF File

Ready to send a large PDF file to your workmates, only to find that it is too large to send via an email? This is the case that happens all the time. Gmail, Yahoo Mail, and many other email clients limit the size of an attachment. If you need to send large PDF files through email regularly, you should learn how to send a large PDF file.

Well, to send a large PDF file through email easily, the most efficient way could be splitting a large PDF into 2 or 3 smaller ones. By doing this, you can send these smaller PDF files one by one. Follow the steps below to learn how to send a large PDF file by splitting it into several smaller ones.

Step 1. Download and install the PDF Splitter

To split a large PDF file for mailing, a PDF Splitter is needed. Here, I recommend you Wondershare PDF Editor, a professional tool which lets you split a large PDF file into several smaller ones with 2 or 3 clicks. Download and install it on your computer.

On the pop-up, you can set your preference for splitting document, either splitting by number of pages or bookmarks. If necessary, I suggest you set a new path to save the upcoming split PDF documents, because by doing this, it is much easier for you to check the split PDF documents later. After you set the method to split the large PDF file, click OK to apply it.

In just a second, the splitting is finished. And then you can email these split PDF files one by one by attaching them to your emails.

Though it seems it is a little time consuming to mail a large PDF file by splitting it into several small ones, it is much safer than storing it on the Internet via Cloud technology. You will never know who will hack the web server. Anyway, have fun in managing PDF files.
