In my case it's sensitive business data, which might include quotes, 
invoices, drawings, and source code. I went with web folders because it had 
"desktop integration" (ie. drag and drop) for the WIMP users and because I 
could secure it over HTTPS.

My sendmail setup is configured to limit attachments to 16 MB.

At my old company I did that after a user decided to mail himself a 50 MB 
movie at the office with the expectation that he'd forward it to his home 
account and that would somehow make it faster than directly downloading it 
from home. I don't recall the mechanism but it wedged either sendmail or 
qpopper. I think it was due to the delay when qpopper copied his huge mbox 
mail folder and Outlook Express timed out.
