File Cache

You may want to add images to your transactional emails. For this, the images have to be stored in your server. Instead, you can upload your images in File Cache section. This will help you better manage your attachments as all of them are in one place. Once you upload an image to the File Cache, it will automatically be assigned a File Cache Key. Use the respective File Cache Key to add that image in your email API. 

  • The total email size which includes your email headers, body content, inline images, and attachments should NOT exceed 15 MB
  • File Cache supports up to 1 GB of storage

The uploaded files can be stored temporarily or permanently.

  • Temporary Upload - these files will be deleted after a specific duration
  • Permanent Upload - these files will be available permanently in the File Cache

You can configure between Temporary upload and Permanent Upload using the Cleanup setting.
