Enable File Storage on a SmarterMail Server

The file storage feature allows users to store files on the SmarterMail server. These files can be made public or password protected so other users (even non-SmarterMail users) can download them when needed and is very useful for sending large attachments without causing the spool to slow.

NOTE: Files stored count toward the user's disk space. If a file exceeds the disk space size limit the user will be unable to upload the file. 

Applies to SmarterMail 8.x - 15.x
