F*EX (Frams' Fast File EXchange) is a Web based service for sending very big files from one person to another. The sender uploads the file to the F*EX server and the recipient automatically gets a notification email with a download URL. Files are automatically deleted after download or an expiration date. The recipient and sender only need an email program and a Web browser. Sending to multiple recipients needs storage on the server only once. In contrast with other file transfer services, it has no file size limits at all and comes with shell tools for scripting up/downloading.

Release Notes: A user can now forward a file directly from incoming spool to other recipients. A new CAPTIVE mode has been added: if set, a user must not change his settings anymore. Name based virtual hosts are now possible: you can run several servers on the same IP and port, but with different hostnames. Several small bugs have been fixed.
Release Notes: The licence has changed from the AGPL to Perl Artistic. When no SMTP is available, the server can be configured to "no mails at all" mode. A VirtualBox VM is available to run the server on Windows. An optional "anonymous upload" has been added for local users who are identified by their IP addresses. Anonymous usage is available via the Web interface and the new afex script, which offers very easy file transfer, especially for administrative accounts. Some minor bugs have been fixed.
Release Notes: Support for Firefox 7 (and later) has been added to upload files greater than 4 GB. A registered user can create a one time upload key (URL), which he can give unregistered users. The admin can forbid certain recipient addresses and restrict uploading or downloading to certain hosts. The user or admin can limit bandwidth usage. The GUI client schwuppdiwupp comes with integrated tar, zip, and 7zip support. Italian and Czech localizations have been added. Once again, several small bugs have been fixed.
Release Notes: Subusers and groupusers no longer need an auth-ID, but can use personalized URLs. The adminstrator can allow self-registration of external users who can send only to internal users (like email), and he can define "public recipients" to which everyone can send files without registration or authentification (like anonymous FTP). Several bugs has been fixed.
