it's an interesting view, it would be like an "uploadbin" but its
usefull? thinking in the user view, how can i search a file in a bunch
of links? having an uploadbin server separated from your mail server
would not be better? giving some training to your users might be more
usefull, that trying to do it with mailscanner.

I did a custom patch in the uploadbin code, that after you upload the
file you could specify the email of the people that had to download de
file, so you did not have to send a email, the system did that and
send de proper links.

hope my english was not too rough :P

my 5 cents.
