The attached files

When reading a message, the files attached to this message can be copied to the local disk with EmailSaveAttachment.
Tip: We recommend that you keep the messages and their attachments on the local disk, then delete them from the server. This operation is used to:
  • reduce the size of the mailbox on the server,
  • improve and speed up the communications: only the new messages will be read on the server.
