You could take a look at:
"Piwva is short for PIne Web View Attachment and it simply extracts
files from mailmessages, copies them to a place where the webserver
can reach it, calulates a link and presents it to the user. Then its
easy to copy and paste the link to a browser and view your attachment.
The script also randomizes a temporary username and password when
viewing an attachment and when you're done the script removes the
attachment from the html directory and again changes username and
password just to keep nosy ppl away :)"
among other things can: "Replace large attachments with links to a
centrally-stored copy to ease the burden on POP3 users with slow modem
Also http://www.accellion.com/sol_large_file_transfer.html It is a
seperate harware/software component though and I have no personel
experience with it. On the plus side from what I can gleam from their
site it's OS independant.
