There are various WebDAV-based programs on various platforms that try 
to make it as easy as possible to integrate with your desktop 
programs, e-mail included.

There are even some e-mail systems that include their own 
WebDAV-enabled attachment storage, so all you have to do is send the 
e-mail with the attachment and the system is intelligent enough to 
file the attachment off to the side and replace the actual file with 
a link to the site where it can be downloaded, etc....  Zimbra is one 
example of such a system, but I'm sure that there are others.

I'd start by looking for easy-to-use WebDAV clients on your platforms 
of choice, and see where you can go from there.

More complex systems are available from companies like Xythos, where 
you can set ACLs as to who can see which files, assign passwords to 
files, and so much more.  But I wouldn't recommend this solution 
off-the-bat, I would instead recommend that you try to find simpler 
lighter-weight options that you investigate first.
