This will be more useful once there's a way to do all of the following:

1) Upload the file to a webserver (which Joe User often doesn't have)
2) Set permissions on the file so only the recipients can get it.
3) Figure out the resulting URL for inclusion in the mail.
4) Deal with removing the file after a week or so.
5) All the *other* cruft involved in that whole process.

In general, *not* something your Aunt Tillie can deal with.
