Send attachments from your OwnCloud account

Full description:

This plugin is now directly integrated in Webapp. It's called the "Files" plugin.

More information can be found here:

Download the newest Version from here:


The OwnCloud attachment plugin is a simple integration for Zarafa WebApp. It allows you to send e-mails with attachments that come from your OwnCloud account. You can browse your Owncloud from within WebApp. These files are not downloaded to your local computer; instead, the attachments are downloaded by the server hosting WebApp, so this makes it suitable for use from public computers.

This Plugin was ported from the Dropbox attachment plugin (by Ivo Timmermans).

Changes since version 1.3:

  • A new context with a webdav browser.You can now browse through all files, preview, add, delete and download them. It is also possible to attach a file directly to an email. A caching mechanism for webdav requests was also introduced to improve the loadtime while browsing through folders. Information for admins: please take a look at the config.php of the plugin - there are some new options to set.
  • For detailed changes take a look at the changelog
  • Warning: version 1.3 is only compatible with WebApp >= 1.3-38243! For older WebApp please use version 1.2.3-1

New WebDAV Browser

WebDav Servers tested:

  • Owncloud 4.5
  • Owncloud 5.x.x (Owncloud <= 5.0.3 has a bug in the webdav implementation that does not update renamed files!)
  • Synology Diskstation WebDAV (Path to Owncloud/Webdav: empty) Use version 1.3.1 if you have a Synology WebDAV server!
  • Drive on Web (Path to Owncloud/Webdav: /probdav)

Next Milestones:

  • Save received attachments directly to your Owncloud account. (since v1.2)
  • Full featured Webdav Client as OwnCloud Webgui replacement. (since v1.3 partially implemented)

PS: This is my first Zarafa plugin and i know that it is not perfect... maybe you can help me to improve :D

If you like my plugin, then think about donating some bucks to help the development.

Release notes:

Just a small bugfix release.

Please test this plugin and send me some feedback (christoph.h [at] sprinternet [dot] at). Thanks.

Does this plugin work with Owncloud 6 ?

asara 2542 days ago

it should, because its just using webdav. but it is not working with webapp 1.4, that is the main problem.

asara 2538 days ago

are there any plans to upgrade the plugin to recent (>1.4) webapp versions ?

Peter Beck 2494 days ago

Sounds like a great plugin. Chris, could you get it working in webapp 1.5 & owncloud 6?

zmi 2415 days ago

Hi Chris, please please Update the Plugin to work with webapp 1.5 and Owncloud 6. With some Mods i got the Upload workin, but nothing else! Your plugin is really usefull for us i think! Maybe you could split it of to individual Plugins to get it work with the newer WebApp Versions (1.4/1.5). Might some donatation from the community help with a new version?

Hi Chris,
