File Storage Overview

SmarterMail's file storage feature allows users to upload files to the server and share them via public links. One benefit of using file storage is that it reduces the stress on the server by keeping large files out of the spool. Note: Files uploaded to the server are counted toward the user's disk space allocation, so users are encouraged to delete files that are no longer used from the server when possible.

To access the file storage area, click the file storage icon. A list of files uploaded to the server will load in the content pane and the following options will be available in the content pane toolbar:

  • Edit - Edits the sharing settings for the selected file.
  • Delete - Permanently removes the selected file(s) from the server.
  • Upload - Uploads a new file to the server.
  • Download - Downloads the selected file(s).

For help understanding the different areas of the file storage section, see the file storage diagram.
