Default Quick Sandboxie Question

All, Happy New Year...

Quick question to clarify something I read in the SBIE forum about email links and Thunderbird/Fossamail (or any client).

I get a lot of business mail with links and files to download and they open in an un-sandboxed Firefox now or are directly downloaded to my desktop.

Is it my understanding that I have to sandbox both Thunderbird and Fossamail to accomplish this?

Or do I make changes to my existing Firefox sandbox?

If so, are these new sandboxes that have to be configured for each application?

Are there standard configurations for the email clients?

As always, thanks, in advance.

I run TB in the same sandbox as I run FF: right click TB and select Run Sanboxed.
You can of course have a different sandbox specifically for TB but this means you would have to close your Sanboxed FF as the free version only allows one sanbox to run.

Yes. You should tick Thunderbird in Sandbox settings>Applications>Email reader. By ticking this settings, emails that you send and receive will be saved out of the sandbox.

If you run your email client sandboxed, all links or attachments that you click, will run sandboxed.
