There are situations when you want your end-users prevent from saving attachments on uncontrolled workstation outside your production environment. A typical example is any Internet coffee area.


Follow these resolution steps:
  • Locate on your server the configuration file webacc.cfg.
  • Find a section "Attachment access control".
  • Change a current value of the parameter User.Access.SaveAs from true into false.
  • Save the file and restart tomcat part of the Webacess
As a result of this change now when the user opens a mail in WebAccess, the link Save As is not present. As you can see tis is all or nothing solution. Therefore if you want to keep the saving option available for your users who use WebAccess internally, you will need to build a second WebAccess server with the original values of the parameter.
