    I just got the trial version of Mobileme. Not just to try it out but because I have a graphics project that needs delivery overseas. Obviously the fastest way to do this is online. But the project is 100+megs and growing andhardly any free online storage services accept files that big (zipping didn't help either)

    Any way I got mobile setup and I password protected my public folder which has the project in it. I want to know I can allow others to access it.

    I tried clicking on the link and it sends me to a page that wants a username and a password. I was expecting it to just be a password thing to access.

    thanks for your time
    P.S. quick responses are appreciated as my employer needs the project by within a few days

    Ditch the password - allow everyone access to it but only allow them to read the files(Set the read-only option in Mac System Prefs) not read and write.

    That means that you don't have to send out an email to all the people you want to access your iDisk.

    They can download the files, but just cant upload their own!

    Dont use your mobileme password

    If you use the password option do not give out your mobileme password.

    If you have a Mac, you can also access any of the files or applications on your computer from another computer using “Back to My Mac.” For more information, in the Finder, choose Help > Mac Help and search for “Using Back to My Mac.”
