Transfer large files to a company network server

Our company regularly receives pictures (JPEG) from many customers via email, for business purposes.
The problem is that the total size of attachment is limited (several MB) and sometime these files do not go through, if too many are specified.
We want, via our Web site interface, these customers to be able to upload their pictures to our servers directly, through a user friendly interface
We code our web pages in ASP
Suggestions are welcome : free or not components etc...
Of course when a customers upload his pictures, he should be able to specify who he is and put some comment... !

What is about FTP. IIs also allowes to publish FTP.
Andrew DerseIT ManagerCommented:
You will probably have to custom code this.

If you do, then you would need to create a form that allows for a file upload, username, date, timestamp, etc...

Basic web development stuff for forms found here:
If you use Dreamweaver, you can use Webassist extensions to accomplish this with very minimal coding. http://www.webassist.com/dreamweaver-extensions/data-bridge/extensions.php

Digital File Pro, included in Data Bridge, allows you to create a form for uploading images where you can set size restrictions, etc.

We do not use DreamWeaver
We use pure ASP
We know how to code simple data entry form but assuming the user enters a file name, how can we upload the file to the server ?
Pure asp?

try the ASP code found here

to test the upload, create an html form that is something like this. The action value must be changed according to your preferences.

<form 	action="testUpload.asp" 

<input type="file" size="20" name="fileName" >
<br> <input type="submit" value="Test Upload" >
