Yes, it's called e-mail, tilman at snafu dot de, it would then go only 
to me and a few dozen intelligence services that read every people's mail.

But seriously, I'd advise against sharing files with personal 
information on them, unless you got the permission of the people 
involved, because it could bring you in trouble with the law.

Are you sure you are using the latest version? We've have had at least 
two people recently who used 2.0 versions not up-to-date. I also ask 
because we recently solved a problem just like the one described.
