Your Novell Filr site can be configured to send outbound email through an existing email system or through the included Postfix SMTP outbound mail server. Email from the Filr site is useful for the following activities:
Filr users can subscribe to email notifications, so that they automatically receive a message whenever content of interest changes. For more information, see
Subscribing to a Folder or File in
Getting Informed in the Novell Filr 1.1 Web Application User Guide.
Filr users can configure folders that they own to send email notifications to other users. For more information, see
Configuring Folders to Send Email Notifications to Other Users in the Novell Filr 1.1 Web Application User Guide.
Filr users can send email messages to folder contributors, as described in
Sending an Email to Folder Contributors in the Novell Filr 1.1 Web Application User Guide.
Filr users can send notifications when a folder or file is shared, as described in
Sharing Files and Folders in the Novell Filr 1.1 Web Application User Guide.
Initial email configuration is performed when you install Novell Filr. Additional aspects of email handling are configured on the Filr site. For information about how to further configure email settings beyond what is covered in this section, see Section 23.0, Managing Email Configuration.
