For Microsoft Outlook users, OutDisk simplifies the uploading of files.
To use Outlook add-in, attach files to your email as usual, and then click the "Use OutDisk" button, and send your email.
It automatically removes large files from the email, uploads them to your server, and inserts a download link into the email message. Download links may be inserted at either the top or bottom of the email mesages, or at a position in the message where the sender inserts a token.
There are several options in OutDisk specifically for Outlook users, including a file size threshold that will automatically activate OutDisk. You can also customize the default text that is inserted around the URL link in the email message.
OutDisk can also be used from the Windows Desktop. A desktop File Drop icon lets you "drag and drop" files into OutDisk.
When the user selects "Start Upload," OutDisk for Windows sends the files to your web server. If the "Launch Email Client" box is selected, OutDisk will invoke your email client and pass the download link directly to a new email message. If this box is not checked, OutDisk will copy the link to the clipboard.
Winzip compatible AES 256-bit zip encryption is supported.
To use OutDisk, you will need a web hosting service that provides HTTP access to the files, and supports PHP or ASP. Most standard web hosting accounts will work very well with OutDisk.
OutDisk uploads each batch of files to a unique sub folder named with high entropy for security. You can customize the landing page that recipients see when they follow your link. OutDisk will also automatically upload an index.shtml page into the directory which you can customize with your own text and logo. This page can display your logo, and the files that are available for download. The user then clicks on the files and downloads them to their disk using their web browser and standard http or https.
See below for an example of the OutDisk download landing page, which can be customized with a little bit of web page experience.
OutDisk's landing pages can be branded with your logo by anyone who has a bit of knowledge editing html.
Uploaded files can be manually deleted or retrieved from the FTP disk using OutDisk's File Manager. For system administrators, a server script is available to automatically remove files after a specified period of time.
