Watch Folders then FTP, E-Mail Notify & Delete local file.

Member_2_4213139 used Ask the Experts™
I'm currently demo'ing a product called "Automate", but trying to find something cheaper or preferrably freeware.

I have 6 folders setup on a server that need to be watched. As soon as a file gets dropped into one of those folders, the file(s) need to get uploaded to their respective ftp site and an e-mail notification must be sent.

After the process has completed, the program MUST delete the file. I'm having a heck of a time finding another program that will remove it afterwards.

Automate is working wonderfully - It's $995 though, so it's a bit pricey. Any ideas? I need something that's rock solid though.
