Looked at SkyDrive but need a service more like Meggaupload or rapidshare but without all the hassle would only need onetime downloads

Email isn't (and never was) designed for large file transfer. Every mail account is limited to around 10/15 MB total size, so no matter what service you're using the other person may not receive it, it simply not made for such big files.

A few options are
Use many emails, limiting each one to 8/10MB in size. It's boring to do but it can be done if the other mailbox isn't full.
Upload the files to some shared storage like DropBox, Mega or something like that and mail him a link to download the whole info. For large files this is the easier solution, even for one time transfers.
Give him somehow access to your computer and allow him to copy the files directly. This is the fastest method, but very difficult if you don't know how to do it.

Gmail limits to 25 MB, and even then upload speeds to gmail are pretty slow. You're better off uploading elsewhere.

I ended up using Mega to easily upload to cloud storage type program with 50GB of free space! lol but i used because of its ease of use to send a link to recipient who they can download or view in Mega
