ZendTo provides the capability for users to share files with members of the Department of Chemistry that are too large to send via email.
The Department's ZendTo server is accessible at https://zendto.ch.cam.ac.uk . It is important that users of the service read the notes below concerning email addresses.
Information for all users of the service
General usage instructions for the ZendTo server are available at https://zendto.ch.cam.ac.uk/about.php .
All files that are dropped off onto the ZendTo server are automatically deleted after 14 days. Also, no backups are kept of files that have been dropped off.
Information for external users (not members of the Department)
The Department of Chemistry ZendTo service can only be used to send files to email addresses of the form firstname.lastname@example.org - i.e., not addresses ending @cam.ac.uk . All members of the Department have a @ch.cam.ac.uk email address (see Chemistry mail domain) - so if you normally correspond with email@example.com, when using our ZendTo service you should send files to firstname.lastname@example.org instead.
Information for members of the Department
Members of the Department can login to https://zendto.ch.cam.ac.uk using their Admitto password. Once logged in, you will be able to see all files that have been dropped off for you to collect. Alternatively, when a file is dropped off for you, you can collect it by clicking the link in the automated email you will receive.
Whilst logged in to ZendTo, any email you send will come from your @ch.cam.ac.uk address in the Chemistry mail domain. This ensures that the service can properly associate files that have been sent to you with your user account, and it is also necessary because we need to ensure that only members of the Department can receive files from external (unauthenticated) users of the service.
