Loyola's Secure Transfer system offers a convenient way to integrate the file transfer process into your daily life. Download the plugin for Microsoft Outlook to send files at the click of a button.


Download the Installation File Here

After the executable file has finished downloading, open the file to start the installation wizard. Follow the prompts until the wizard is finished.


Now that you have installed the Plugin, start up Outlook. When composing a new email, you should see the icon in the outlook ribbon pictured below.

Note: If you don't see the Secure Transfer icon, please restart Outlook.

Using Secure Attach for the first time, you will be unable to see all 7 options. Instead, your drop menu will look as follows:

Selecting the "Options" icon will pull up the following window. This is where you will connect to our Secure Transfer server.

You will need to fill in the server field by entering "securetransfer.luc.edu" into the dialogue box. You will also need to enter your UVID and password.

After assigning the server settings, the following options will become available to you under the Secure Transfer drop-menu.




Secure Attach: Select a file from your computer to be sent using Secure Transfer directly from your Outlook account.

Attach Folder: Select an entire folder from your computer to be sent using Secure Transfer directly from your Outlook account.

Secure Attach All: Adjust the settings to treat all your attachments as Secure Transfer files. This will automatically send everything through Secure Transfer. We do not recommend this setting.

File Request: Send a message to a user requesting a specific file.

Private Message: Send a message with the content hosted entirely within Secure Transfer.

Select existing files: Send a file that you have already uploaded to Secure Transfer.
