Remarks

The attached files

When reading a message, the files attached to this message can be copied onto the local disk (or onto the server disk) by EmailSaveAttachment.
Tip: We recommend that you save the messages and their attached files on the local disk (or on a server disk), then delete them from the email 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.
