Sending to an Email Address

You are here:

If you need to send a one-off file to a recipient who doesn’t have a SENT account yet, sending to their email address may be a good option.

However, please note that this is a less secure option, so if you find yourself sending them files more than once, inviting them to be your contact at SENT is wiser.

To send to an email address, start by navigating to the Send page.

You can get there by clicking the Send Files button on your Dashboard, or by clicking on SEND from the menu bar at the top of the page.

Click on the Any Email Address button.

Check the Checkbox if you would like the file to be delivered to the recipient’s SENT inbox if they are a SENT member. If they are not a SENT member, they will receive the file in a temporary inbox.

Fill in the email address and click Continue.

Click Choose Files to select one or more files to upload.

If desired, you may also type an Encrypted Note for that recipient.

They will see it in their Inbox when they retrieve their file(s).

For the highest level of security, the default Expiration Date is set to 1 day.

You can change this by using the drop-down menu.

SENT will default to allow your recipient to download your SENT file(s) multiple times.

If you wish to, you can easily restrict it by unchecking the box.

Remember that since anyone with access to the recipient’s email can download the file, limiting both the days available and the downloads is advisable for your security.

Click View Details to see the stamp cost breakdown of your transaction.

If you need more stamps to cover your transaction, there will be a Buy Stamps button below the View details area.

Choose the amount you would like to buy.

Click  Purchase Stamps.

Now you are ready to send your files and you can see your stamp balance updated.

If you’re ready to go, click Approve and Send.

Your file will upload.

You will see your stamp balance is updated accordingly.

Your file is now SENT and your recipient will receive a link to a temporary inbox where they can pick up their file.
