Documents

Webmail themes support document sharing using Documents Folders. Documents Folders are like other shared folders in that you can give other MDaemon Webmail users access to them. You can set the access permissions separately for each user and set the level to: Full Control, Editor, Reader, or No Access. Further, you can create any number of these folders and use them to store or share any types of files. You can upload files to your documents folders using the built-in tools. Additionally, when using the LookOut or WorldClient theme, browsers that support HTML5's Drag and Drop features, such as the latest versions of Chrome and Firefox, can also upload files by dragging them from the desktop into the browser window. Filenames can be searched and renamed, and files can be attached to new messages that are being composed.

1.Click Documents to switch to the default documents folder. If you wish to upload the document to a different folder, click the desired documents folder in the Folder List.
