Bigmail

If your file is too large for our email servers you can use Bigmail:
Bigmail is a webbased application to upload data to our servers that informs the recipients by utf-8-encoded email how to download the data.

If your browser supports HTML5 you can upload files of any size, otherwise there is a browser-based limit.

In this context "members" are all persons who hold an account at TUGRAZonline and can authenticate at our SSO server.
"Non-members" need a TAN, which can be used within two calender days CE(S)T.

Bigmail will store the data for 30 days.

If you want to specify more than one recipient, please separate them by commas.

The "language used for notification" defines the language for the email that is sent to all of the recipients:

Incoming

Only the sender email address is verified by our TAN system, so it is necessary to solve a CAPTCHA, too.

English version of email:

There are files for you from name at bigmail.TUGraz.at.
The sender has not been verified by us - don't open the files if you are not expecting data, because they have not been checked for malware!

The files will be there for 30 days.

Der Absender wurde von uns *nicht* verifiziert, Sie sollten diese Daten also nur dann öffnen, wenn Sie von diesem Absender Daten erwarten, da die Daten auch nicht auf Malware untersucht wurden.

Diese Daten bleiben 30 Tage am Server.

Users have to log in to authenticate. You can use a username and a password for stronger protection of your data. Data will not be encrypted but you will have to know the exact name and this username and password, too, to get access to this data.
If you use "default" and "default" this will be deactivated.

The script will not allow to use your own username, but please don't use your own password because it will be be sent to the recipient(s)!

The sender will get a similar email, using the language of the interface (not necessarily the language chosen for the recipients' email).

Setting "Deleteable" to "yes" will display a link to all recipients that will remove the files from server. Attention: The first recipient will be able to delete the files!

The upload button will be shown after you have chosen your files and only if all other information is completed - so choose the files for upload as last step!

Outdated versions of Internet Explorer (maybe IE in compatibility mode) are not supported! Please update your Internet Explorer or deactivate compatibility mode or use some other browser!

ASCII characters with special importance for the file system (like "." and "/") within the file names will be replaced by "_", non-ASCII characters are not allowed.


There is a similar service provided by ACOnet for members of ACOnet Identity Federation: filesender.aco.net. Members of TU Graz are members of this federation.

You can also use our FTP server or our ownCloud server.
