Yousendit was a file transfer service that rebranded to Hightail in 2013. If the main thing you're trying to do is request files from non-tech-savvy clients, there's a much easier alternative: Fileinbox.
OpenText. After Yousendit rebranded to Hightail in 2013, Hightail rebranded again to OpenText in 2018 when it got acquired by an enterprise company. Confusingly some parts of their service are still called Hightail.
Unfortunately not. Yousendit used to be a simple tool exclusively for file sending and receiving tool (like Fileinbox) but it changed to to Hightail in 2013. Hightail is now a more complicated project management, document collaboration, and team organization tool and the core functionality of sending and receiving files has become more complicated.
