Add Thru Dropbox™ Link to Email Signature


Any Thru user with a Home folder can create a Thru Dropbox™ link to include in an Outlook email signature.

This link allows non-Thru users to securely send large files and sensitive information directly to a user's Thru Dropbox™.

All of this mail goes directly into the Thru Dropbox™, which is accessed by the Thru user in the same way as any other email.

To create your link:

  1. Substitute the "companyname" text and the email address "name@companyname.com" shown in the link format above with your company's Thru site name and your email address.
    1. In the following example, we replaced "companyname" with demo and replaced the email address with name@abctechnology.com:
      1. Example: https://demo.thruinc.net/Desktop/Dropbox/Create/?toemail=name@abctechnology.com
    2. NOTE: If your company has a unique Thru site URL that does not end in .thruinc.net as shown above, then fill in your Thru site URL in place of https://companyname.thruinc.net* at the beginning of the Thru Dropbox link.
      1. Example: https://filetransfer.companyname.com/Desktop/Dropbox/Create/?toemail=name@companyname.com

To add a Thru Dropbox link to your Outlook signature:

  1. Go to Outlook Options by selecting File > Options
  2. In the Options window, select the Mail tab.
  3. Select Signatures.
  4. In the Signatures window, select an existing e-mail signature to edit or select New to create a New Signature.
  5. In your e-mail signature, add a line such as "My Thru Dropbox™: Send me files securely"
  6. Select the "Send me files securely" text with the mouse and right-click.
  7. Select Edit Hyperlink.
  8. Insert the Thru Dropbox™ link created above into the URL field and then click OK.
