Request for UTHSC Business Xythos Account

Xythos is a secure "digital locker" or file server that may be used to upload documents for emailing or sharing. When using Xythos to email a document, a user would upload the document to their Xythos account and use Xythos to generate the email. Xythos then creates a link to the document and emails that link, rather than emailing the actual attachment. If the person receiving the document is also a Xythos user, then your Xythos document will simply be set to allow the recipient to share that document.

The advantages are

  1. the document is accessed via a secure web link rather than being sent over the Internet in "clear text"
  2. the document is not included in the email as an actual attachment making the size of the message much smaller
