Attachments - Webmail File Sharing
File sharing allows you to share files outside of email. The largest file attachment you can send in your email is 25 MB. Using file sharing you can share or store a back-up copy of files larger than 25 MB. This tutorial provides an overview of the file storage feature.

Important: Files uploaded to Webmail count against your mail storage quota. If your email account has a 2 GB quota and you upload a 1 GB file, that leaves 1 GB of free storage quota for your email messages.

To access your file storage, click Files in the Webmail header.

Uploading files

You can save up to 2000 files in the Files section, with up to 1000 files in any one folder.

Once a file is uploaded, you can share it with others by sending them a link to the file.

To upload a file

1. Click Files.


2. Optionally, select the folder where you want to store the file. If you don`t select a folder, the file will be stored at the top level, also known as the root.

3. Click the upload icon.


4. Browse to the file that you want to upload, select it, and then click Open.


The selected file is uploaded to the folder that you chose in step 2.
Note: Large files may take a few minutes to upload.  Webmail does not display progress, so it may appear as though nothing is happening.  

You can create customized folders to organize your files.

To create your own folders

1. In the Files section, click New, and then click Folder.


2. In the text box, type a name for the new folder and press the Enter key.


Your new folder is displayed in your Files list.


Sharing files

To share files and folders

1. Mouse over the file or folder that you want to share, and click Share.


2. Click to put a check in the Share link box.


The box expands to display a link for the file or folder.


Highlight and copy this link.

You can now use the link to share the file or folder over email, instant messenger, social networking, and so on.

If you want to email the link to a single address without having to copy it and then paste it into an email message, you can enter an email address in the Email link to person text file and click Send.

If you put a check in the Password protect box and enter a password in the corresponding field, anyone who tries to use the link will have to enter the password you specified before they can view the file or folder.

You can also put a check in the Set expiration date and choose the date when the link will stop working. When you click anywhere in the field, a calendar appears that allows you to choose the expiry date.
