Dropbox was integrated into Yahoo! Mail back in April. It is now July and the same Dropbox functionality made its way to Yahoo! Mail for Android.

Yahoo! kicked off the month of April by announcing that, with the aim of making Yahoo! Mail an easier to use and a more helpful service, it struck a agreement with Dropbox, the very popular cloud storage and file synchronization service. As part of the Yahoo! – Dropbox agreement, Dropbox functionality has been integrated into Yahoo! Mail.


“Starting today, Dropbox is available within Yahoo! Mail,” announced Yahoo! on Tuesday, April 2, 2013. “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. 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.”

By integrating Dropbox into Yahoo! Mail, the following functionality became available:
  • Save attachments to Dropbox – there are two options for saving attachments: Save to my computer and Save to Dropbox.
  • Attach files from Dropbox – files from Dropbox can be attached to emails.
  • Send large files with Dropbox – drag and drop an attachement into your email and it will be sent through Dropbox.
Yahoo! kicked off the month of July by updating and integrating Dropbox into Yahoo! Mail for Android. The Dropbox functionality presented above is no longer a desktop-only thing. It is now available for Android-powered mobile as well.

“Beginning today, it’s easier to send files of any size when you’re on the go, with our new Dropbox integration in Yahoo! Mail for Android,” announced on Tuesday, July 9th, David McDowell, Senior Director of Product Management with Yahoo! Mail and Ash Sharma, Product Manager with Yahoo! Mail.

“Earlier this year, we worked with Dropbox to make it easier to send and receive large attachments in Yahoo! Mail on the web, and millions of you have done so. Now, it’s just as easy to share documents, photos and videos from Yahoo! Mail for Android,” McDowell and Sharma added.
