    It all depends on the client. You'll have to ask them what they are capable of, and what they prefer.

    Email usually works fine for files 10mb and under. For larger files, or batches, I usually zip or rar them and FTP them. A cd in the mail is the last resort.

    I have been doing theatre shoots (during dress rehearsal) and sending large sets of images for review by http://www.yousendit.com, and posting a low-res show at slide.com.

    Most my work is with ad agencies and local businesses. I almost always drop off a cd with the bill. Kind of a friendly reminder to "pay promptly m¨†?å f¨ç?å"

    File transfer depends on the equipment the client has and the equipment you have. If you have a fast connection and the client has a fast connection it is usually easiest to zip them and send them. For larger quantities of images I still overnight them to clients on a CD/DVD as the need demands. Also check with the client and see if they are computer literate, not all are and not all like getting photos as e mail.
