Step 5: Unzip the file. Inside is the extension file that you will install into Lumira along with contents for your end user to learn how to install and use the extension

NOTE: It is recommended to distribute the exported extension via file share, or cloud-based drive. When emailing extensions, most email security programs could modify the contents or block sending extensions.
