Can you create shorter links for downloadable files?

We are shaing files and the links are soooooo long that is very easy to have an error when copy-pasting it and we have noticed that when using Mac Mail and creating a "clickable link" on a word and pasting the url, sometimes it gets cut by Mac mail, so shorter links may help a lot.
 
Example or a SM link:
http://ourmailserverdomain.com/download?data=bkEJBG3b4VXR87j1IY3rY0PlvLG4ON%2bmGmjAtoLP0mmyaJCeyjCqvN1dDGunu%2f4wf%2fJ6VjwnZEcKOmQ5ZRqFc7RIWjReHpTLDvEaTK24kQRnsIxWt%2bUWGEdIGNwUBDLpsrnek16PUnHtcsgpd%2bm6m6f1Dv5uj8bwMxb62wzeMQRAyUySoILlJg%3d%3d
 
IIs there a way to get links like Dropbox o Box where links are way shorter?
 
Examples:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/0w7q1yn9mfth07q/06%20Track%20334.m4a?dl=0
https://app.box.com/s/z3k1k8c5p87x4r8gf6txcls7n5lzfquri15

Hi Jorge,

This was modified in SmarterMail 16.x and has carried over to the Current Build. File Storage public download links are now much shorter than they once were and are much more in line with the Dropbox and Box URLs you provided in your original post.
