Unfortunately, most, if not all email services limit you to 10MB attachments. You could set up an FTP server and give your "friend" access to the file. A nice program to use would be SmartFTP.

You could also do a file transfer through a chat client like AIM or Yahoo Messenger.

This site allows you to upload files up to 500 MB if you can compress it enough:

It will take like seven hours. Go with Atomic Rooster's first suggestion, and host through an FTP server.

you could also make a free account at http://www.filefront.com/ and host the file on your account and then send the download link to the recipient , then they could download it themselves
