OneBox (beta) is an online service that helps to automatically send all your Inbox and sent email attachments to your Google Drive account, OneDrive, Box, or Dropbox. It supports Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, Outlook, IMAP, and Exchange accounts. It doesn’t move attachments from emails, rather lets you store those attachments to your cloud service in an organized manner.
It scans your Inbox and sent mails for attachments and fetch last 30 days attachments automatically. You can store attachments to any of your needed cloud storage service.
With each of these cloud storage services, you will be able to add multiple accounts which makes it more valuable. For example, with Google Drive, you can connect your Gmail and Yahoo! Mail account. One cloud storage can be used at a time to fetch attachments from multiple accounts.
In above screenshot, you can see attachments fetched by this service for two of my connected accounts.
It creates a ‘OneBox‘ folder in your selected cloud storage account and store all fetched attachments there. Whether attachments contain photos, videos, spreadsheets, or anything else, it will store each attachment type in separate folder. Thus, it stores as well as organizes attachments very well. See the screenshot below:
