I used to go into idisk and drop files into the Sites folder and then access them at this URL

homepage.mac.com/username/filename

Now I cant seem to do this and get a 404.

I have noticed that there is another Sites in iWeb folder and another one a couple of folders deep within that folder as well.

Does anyone know where I can drop a file and the URL I would need to give someone to get it?

Cheers
Len

My understanding is that this promised functionality in Mobile Me has not yet been implemented.

I use SugarSync (http://www.sugarsync.com/) to do this.

Use http://idisk.mac.com/*username*/?view=web to go to root, then pick the folder you want.
The folder 'Web' contains the 'Sites' directory.

drop the file within the SITES folder in WEB which is in the root directory of your idisk

web.mac.com/username/filename.ext

ignore the other sites directory in the root directory
