Faspex 3.9.3 patch for symlinking and direct upload to custom inbox feature


A patch is now available for Faspex 3.9.3 for Linux, which fixes the issue in which custom inbox and relay files were not being symlinked when enabled.

This patch also gives workgroups the ability to upload directly to a custom inbox, rather than having to go through the default inbox.


  • Product: Faspex 3.9.3 and higher + Enterprise Server/Connect Server or higher
