Update 2022: ForgetBox no longer exists. We recommend you to try some other tool of its kind instead.
ForgetBox is a Gmail tool to send large files through Gmail as attachments.You can configure any of your Gmail account with ForgetBox and easily send large files by GMail. To send large files via Gmail, you just need to download this tool on your PC, and then you can attach any large file to Gmail. I am not able to find the maximum file size that can be sent with ForgetBox in one go, but the limit (if any) seems to be fairly large.
ForgetBox defines its name in a perfect way as you just have to select multiple files or one single folder containing multiple files and this tool sends your attachment in background. Select or enter the email id on which you want to send the bulk file. After that, this large file tool starts sending your attachment in background. You can easily check the progress with the system tray of your PC.
We have already written about many services to send large files by email, but ForgetBox is definitely one of the best. It seamlessly integrates large file sending with Gmail, and makes it quite painless.

Step 4: Enter the Email ID on which you want to send the file. You can also select any Email address from your Gmail contacts. Then tap on send option.

Step 6: Now as soon as you click on send, ForgetBox will start sending the bulk files in background. You can easily check the status of your ongoing process in the system tray on your PC.
The receiver will receive files in the form of a regular incoming mail from firstname.lastname@example.org, including an option to download all the attachments simultaneously. The download attachment will be a ZIP file. Just click over “Download” to the received attachment, directly from your Gmail inbox. Take a look over the screen-shot to understand it in a better way:
