Cobain looks interesting; is there any other softwars out there that will perform this as well?

Although this is not free Altaro Backup FS I belive it has what you want.

This could probably be done with a simple batch file, a scheduled task, and DropBox. Encryption would present a challenge, you'd likely need to find a good command-line cipher tool (or just put the files in a passworded Zip file using something like the 7-Zip command line tool) FTP would also be an option using the built-in command line FTP client. E-mail would require another tool. Of course this would get unwieldy for anything more than a few files.
