Here's the description from synaptic:

F*EX (Frams's Fast File EXchange) is a service that can be used to allow
users anywhere on the Internet to exchange very large files quickly and

The sender uploads the file to the F*EX-server and the recipient
automatically gets a notification e-mail with a download-URL.

Main features of F*EX:

 * file transfer of virtually unlimited file size
 * sender and recipient only need an e-mail program and a web browser
   (of any kind; they do not have to install any software)
 * RESEND and REGET for resuming after link failures at last sent byte
 * auto-notification of recipient
 * auto-deletion after download
 * auto-deletion after expiration date (default: 5 days)
 * full-users can create sub-users, who can send only to this full-user
 * maintenance-free: no administration necessary beyond creating new
   F*EX accounts
 * multiple recipients only require one stored copy
 * F*EX uses HTTP and needs no firewall tunnels
 * support for streams, too (SEX: Stream EXchange)
 * shell clients provided for commandline users: fexsend and fexget.
   (fex-utils package)
