Installing the EFT Outlook Add-In

To use the Workspaces with Outlook, you must first install the EFT Outlook Add-In. You can use the deployment script available on the Workspaces File Send tab of the Site to deploy it to multiple computers at once in any deployment tool that you normally use, or you can install it with the EFT Outlook Add-In installer as described below.

NOTE: If a "Publisher cannot be verified" prompt appears during the installation of the EFT Outlook Add-In, ensure that you are using the latest version of Microsoft Office 2019.

Before installing, refer to the system requirements.

When configuring Outlook to send files with Workspaces, ensure the following configuration is set:

  • The user account must have Allow Secure File Sending enabled on the user account's Connections tab.

  • Kerberos requires the administrator to set the SPN for the account EFT is using.

  • All user accounts need folder creation at their root folder enabled.
