How about http://drop.io ?  It is also integrated with Yahoo's web
mail (all new beta), but it
appears you can go directly to drop.io and make a drop.  I used it once, and
thought there was little security (ie no password for the recipient to get a
file).  I read an article that mentioned it was the needle in a haystack idea,
that an unauthorized person has to "find" a file and the odd bucket it
is in,  before looking at it, which is unlikely.

Today I looked at the URL above, and it looks like they do have some guest
password options.
