Downloader needs valid email FileCap asks for an email address when a transfer is sent to multiple recipients. This setting controls if this email is actually checked against one of the original recipients of the file transfer.

Setting this setting to Off is generally advised because it often happens that users have multiple email addresses. A downloader would need to know the exact email address the sender used.

MSP admin access Setting this to On allows MSP admins to access this FileCap customer portal.

Note: Only available when an MSP license is used and logged in as MSP user.
