Windows 10: Permissions on emailed files Solved

    Permissions on emailed files

    I'm sure this is a silly question, but I'll ask it anyway. I confess I don't really understand permissions but I know they limit access to files. So if I email a file to somebody who is not on my network, what happens to any permissions the file may have?

    Grateful for any explanation.

    All permission is removed when sent by email

    Thanks for your reply, Samuria. I suspected that must be the case but it's good to get confirmation.
