By default, users can post files along with the messages they post. You can prevent users from posting files in two ways:

Federated users cannot post or download files in chat rooms.

To prevent all users from posting files within a certain category or chat room

  1. In the Chat Roomslist, click the category or chat room.

  2. In File uploads, select No.

  3. Click Apply.

    If you are editing a category, this change immediately applies to any subcategories and chat rooms within it that inherit the File uploadssetting from this category.

  2. In the Find Users and User Groupsarea, in the Search Forbox, type the name or part of the name of the user, and then click Search.

  3. In the list of names that match your query, click the name you want, and then click Manage.

  4. In the Manage Userdialog box, click Permissions.
