A NEW DROPBOX FOR ATTACHMENTS

A NEW DROPBOX FOR ATTACHMENTS

Remember when mail attachments weren’t sent because uploads were slow and mails bounced back due to full inboxes? Along came faster Internet, more storage and the smartphone. With a 3G connection that charges you by data downloads, how do you handle such large attachments on it? Here’s how:

  • Go to www.sendtodropbox.com and sign up here as well. Connect this account with the Dropbox one and it will result in an email id resembling the following: yourname_1234@sendtodropbox.com

  • Share this ID with your contacts. Files and attachments will now directly land in your Dropbox account, which can also be synchronised with your PC. It has an easy-to-manage file system, which helps avoid your inbox bloat. For free.

Caution: To prevent spamming and quick filling up of your Dropbox storage don’t share this email ID widely. Upgrading to Pro service from sendtodropbox.com at $3 per month (about R150) gives these benefits: a better email ID (yourname@sendtodropbox.com), multiple email addresses and a list of who can and who cannot send you files.
