I have a public page for a graphic artist to use to link html mailers to images, but I am looking for him to be able to ftp into a directory then have that data append to the inetpub directory.

Running filezilla and he is not able to see inetpub/wwroot/foldername when I map that folder as FTP

Do you just want to throw everything in the root or do you plan on having user folders? For individual user folders/user authentication IIS will work fine.
Which version of IIS?

IIS 6

I just created a directory so that the user can map his images on the webserver to his HTML redirects for an eblast project he is working on.

The user FTP's to the machine with filezilla, he goes to a FTP folder and can upload the images there, but hten I need to move them to the inetpub/eblast folder inorder for him to use the images.

When I add the inetpub/wwroot/eblast folder to his ftp account, he cant see the folder.

Okay, so here's what you need to do:

Create a VERY restricted group in Windows and deny all privileges you can. Then remove each user from all other groups and add them to this one. Then add the group you create to the NTFS permissions of the LocalUser folder (with advanced on the security tab) and set inheritance to subfolders and files with write, read, list, and modify permissions.
1) Create a folder where you want in your www site called "LocalUser". This must be spelled exactly like I said or it won't work.
2) Create a local user account in Windows with the username you want the user to have and set the password you want them to use. MAKE SURE YOU REMOVE THEM FROM ANY GROUPS OTHER THAN THE RESTRICTED ONE YOU CREATED AS THIS WILL CAUSE A SECURITY PROBLEM.
3) Repeat for all users.
4) Setup a new FTP site with the root set to the folder that the LocalUser folder is located in. Make sure you specify "Isolate users" during the setup. Here's an MS article with steps.

5) Create a folder for each username in the LocalUser folder or the FTP won't work.
