What is a group in Mailfence?

A Mailfence group allow users to share mailbox, documents, calendar, contacts and perform instant chatting with group members. Group administrator can define specific access rights per user and per tool (read, write). Total number of items and storage of each group is based on group administrator subscription plan.

For more information about group functionality on Mailfence, check out the announcement on our blog.

A group provides you the following:

  • Private space: The allotted capacity of all the tools/features based on your subscription plan.
  • Group space: An extendible capacity that can be claimed either by creating a group (administrator) or joining other groups (member). Group space remains private as long as you do not add any group member.

Please check tables below for details on Private and Group space (extendible up to the number of created/joined groups) for each of the subscription plan.
