Once the desired file is captured, the folder and file name will appear in the ‘File:’ data entry box.  Next, enter any comments you may have regarding the issue in the Comments section.  In clude your contact information in this section as well.  Note: if you are sending the file ‘blind’, that is, no one has been informed that you are sending it, it is advisable you include comments.  The ‘Encrypt file during send’ checkbox is default-checked.  Leave this checked for security purposes.  No information will be entered in the ‘Alternate Serve Address:’ box.  When you are ready to send the file, click ‘OK’.

While the file is in CFFM’s hands, be assured the file remains secure. When the problem is resolved, FINPACK Tech Support deletes the file from the CFFM server.
