Managing attached files in mails is kind of daunting task especially when we need to search one from the mail we received ages ago. It’s really hard to schedule and manage attachments in mails, but using a simple Google Chrome Extension we can tame the overall system of attachments in G-Mail. Here’s how you can use these service to get the most out of it.
How To Control Attachments in Gmail
From searching, sharing or saving the attachments to cloud storage accounts, attachments when blended with G-Mail account, can easily take care of all your needs. Here’s how you can use it.
- First visit Attachments.me, create an account. Connect it with your G-mail account by granting the access. You’ll be asked to connect to the cloud storage accounts(Dropbox and Box.net) to bridge the connection between the two web services. If you want to save your E-mail attachments to the cloud storage services too, then you can connect the two accounts.
- Once you are done connecting the two services, all your attachments from G-mail account will be indexed by Attachments.me brainy computers, where they will display all your attachments at one simple web page.
- Now this web page is the power house of Attachments.me web service. From the attachments displayed there, you can search the desired one typing the attachment file name. Or if you are searching for some specific file(image, video, documents, audio, zip files and more), you can always skim the selected extension by choosing the right one from the Any Attachments drop down menu.
- So that’s how you can easily search the desired attachments from your G-mail inbox.
How To Share or Save The Attachments Files To Cloud Storage Accounts
Attachments.me is not only restricted to simple searching and traversing of attachments files from G-Mail inbox, but users can straight away upload their attachments files to Cloud Storage Accounts(Dropbox and Box.net) too. I’m assuming that you’ve already connected the cloud storage services. Here’s how.
- There are two ways to save E-mail attachments to Dropbox and Box.net cloud storage accounts.
- Either directly from the G-Mail inbox or from the attachments.met account.
- For a demo, open any mail with attachments files attached with it.
- Just to its right, in the sidebar, using the attachments.me menu. Click on Upload to Dropbox or Box.net cloud storage services button. Bored of directing your G-mail attachments everyday, you can Set automatic filling, the option beneath it, which will direct all your attachments to respected cloud storage services.
- The same task can be done via the attachments.me account, simply login and you’ll see all your attachments. Hover over one of them. And use the options offered by the service there.
Attachments.me is a versatile web services, and does what it says pretty well. What are your views?
