OT - Outbound mail server integrated with FTP

I'm looking for a solution to the problem of large (often duplicated) 
email attachments. It seems to me that a simple solution to the problem 
is to have a specially configured outbound mail server that detaches 
attachments from any email greater than 50K, generates an ftp account 
and inerts a message at top of the email saying "go to 
ftp://un:pw@ftpserver.com for attachment referenced in this email.

If the server was really smart, it would generate a CRC of each outbound 
attachment so duplicates could be stored as one file.

Anyone see anything like this? I've been doing some Googling, without 
great success.
