Does anyone know of a reasonably priced Windows based FTP solution that meets the following requirements?
1) Provides email notifications when a file is uploaded to multiple email addresses.
2) Has a web-based client so that the end user will not need an FTP client on their end.

The solution could be:
1 - A regular FTP server
2 - A Web based FTP applet with redirect after upload
3 - A simple email PHP script called by the applet (on redirect).

For #2, you can check out JFileUpload:

For #3, you have a PHP email sample at:

And for #1, you can use any FTP server: PUREFTPd, Titan FTP server ...
