Make / default mailbox in Myfilegateway upload screens

It is very cumbersome for the end-user that it is necessary to choose the upload mailbox which almost only contains the / and /Inbox (and /Inbox is actually invalid because it is not monitored by SFG)

What is your industry? Financial Markets
How will this idea be used?

The user will only have to select the desired file before starting the upload.

    Please see attached file for input from our Business Unit which is responsible for 7500 future MyFilegateway users. Business Unit is very worried about the business consequence of the current upload page.

    Several partners have already mistakenly used the /inbox for upload, and the complaint that the files were not processed. When logging in the upload field is empty and the drop down shows / and /Input. Should at least present / in the field as default.
