|The Webdisk allows you to store files on the server and
access them from anywhere.
Arguably the primary use of Webdisk is to save detached files attached
to your emails. Due to the way many non-text files (pictures, video or
sound files, word processing documents, etc.) are handled in transit,
they have to be 'repackaged' for transmission. This increases the file
size by some 30%. When you store the attachment on Webdisk, the
original format and size are restored. So, in brief, you can store more
files on Webdisk than in email attachments.
You can also use Webdisk as an additional file space, for absolutely
anything you wish to store there - it does not have to be email
related. There is no distinction between Webdisk space and 'email'
means it's entirely up to you how you use your disk area. If you see
no need for using Webdisk explicitly, feel free to ignore it and all
the storage area will be available for your emails.
Webdisk supports many file operations such as copy and rename to save
time from downloading and re-uploading. You can also make preview
thumbnails of images, get instant previews of documents, and even edit
files directly on the server.
Preferences for the Webdisk can be set in the Webdisk Options.
