Yahoo! Mail and Dropbox Announce New Partnership

In what comes as yet another promising move for Yahoo and its “comeback” efforts, the formal announcement came Tuesday that Yahoo has integrated cloud storage service Dropbox into its email system.

A Yahoo blog post confirms that the two companies are joining forces to enable users to send, receive and manage Dropbox files within Yahoo Mail.

“This integration allows you to share and store files more easily, whether they are vacation photos or important documents like tax returns and research papers,” the Yahoo blog post reads. “And, because files can be stored in your Dropbox account online, it’s easy to find the files you want even when you are away from your desktop.”

The fusion with Dropbox means that email users are no longer restricted to 25MB file size attachments.

We’re told the integration is available in the English, French, Spanish, German and Italian versions of Yahoo Mail.

Dropbox’s fascination with email has been pronounced as of late. As MMW reported just last month, Dropbox recently acquired the hugely popular Mailbox app.

“We hope you like this new integration in Yahoo! Mail and that it makes sending, receiving and managing your attachments easier,” Yahoo said today.
