[ZendTo] Drop-offs fail from external users with a request code

Hi Philip,

Switching off allowExternalUploads does a complete job of "what it says 
on the tin". It stops all users who cannot actually login from being 
able to upload files. That way only internal users can send files, which 
is what some people want.

Hope that helps,
