No more unencrypted emails! EVER!

Looking for an open source, self-contained and webpage-based file lockbox program where my clients can upload sensitive files I don't want them emailing to me. Suggestions?

I have quite a few clients in my firm who need to provide us with electronic documents that might contain sensitive information. Although we're pretty good at dissuading people from sending unencrypted emails with unencrypted attachments to us, there are many times where we'd rather they be able to send the files to us in some electronic manner.
While driving home today, I remembered using website "drop boxes" while in college to submit papers and the like to professors. It would work perfectly in the situations we have - I could just email a link to our site (something akin to "files.foobar.com") and have them upload them to our site via HTTPS.
To be clear, I basically want something akin to FTP, but easy enough that your mother (and my mother) could use it. Having web-level access to the drop box for myself and my law partner would be nice, but not 100% necessary; I can FTP down the files on the other end if that's not included. Also, the ability for the user to assign a name tag to the uploaded file(s) (i.e. Bob Lawblah's Files) would be a big help, too.
Lastly - I need it to be compiler-ready code or better (a Debian package would be seriously tits); I don't have the skill, patience, or time to code anything.
