Looking for a large file attachment solution for exchange/outlook

We are using Exchange 2007 server, and mostly Outlook 2003/2007.  Our users often need to send large PDF files (20-100MB) to other users.  Our attachment limit is 20MB (which I think is plenty, rather have it at 10MB personally) but there is definitely a need for sending large files in this company.

I've set them up with our FTP server and a mapped network drive that they can drop the files into their "X" drive and send a link to the recipient, but that has been cumbersome to the everyday user and hasn't been used much.

Does anyone know a good solution for sending large email attachments?  I am envisioning an app of some kind that would take large attachments, dump them on our FTP server, and replace the attachment with a hyperlink that be sent to the recipent for download via FTP.  Maybe as an outlook add-in or running directly on the exchange server.

But I'm open to any solutions that would solve this issue, let me know experts!

Thanks in advance,
