File name templates

With file name templates, you can do an automatic naming of the email and attachment which you save.  You have one template for emails and one for attachments. Please note that you always have the opportunity to rename the suggested filename before saving.

How it works:

Let’s say you have an email with the subject “News”. When you save it, the default filename will be the subject, e.g. “News” in this case. If you want the filename to contain the current date as default, you can specify the email templates as {Subject}_{MailDate}. If the current date is May 7, 2020 the default filename will be “News_2020-05-07”.

You can also specify a custom date format by using date and time tokens. If you want the date formatted as 20-May-07 you must use the following format token {MailDate:YY-MMM-DD}.

The same rule also applies to the filename template for attachment, except that you must use {FileName} instead of {Subject}.

Below is a complete list of valid date/time tokens that can used:
