New Koofr feature – an inbox for your files!

Want to save email attachments from your email in your cloud storage account? Up until now, this was a relatively annoying process. Open the email, save the attachments to your computer, open your cloud storage, upload the files to your cloud storage – it’s a drag! This new Koofr feature eliminates most of these steps. See how!

This new feature allows you to save files that were sent in an email as attachments directly into your chosen Koofr folder. It's a part of an existing feature you know as Receive files, and it makes saving your files from emails fast and easy - you just need to take a minute to set things up in your Koofr folder.

How does it work?

Step 1: Choose a folder which will function as an inbox for your email files. You can, of course, add this feature to any folder you already have in your Koofr app.

Step 2: Click on the Share button on the chosen folder, then click Receive files.

Step 3: In the pop-up screen, you will find a field titled Receive files via email. In it, you will see an email address, usually a very complicated one. This is a unique email address that Koofr automatically creates and now functions as another gateway to saving the files in the chosen folder.

Step 4: Don't like the super complicated email address? :) You can change it by changing the link in the Edit short URL field. Just click the Edit on the right and type in the URL you'd prefer.

Step 5: Now just copy the email address and send it to anyone who wants to send you files or use it yourself to simply forward the email with files to your selected Koofr folder.

To sum it up: when someone sends you an email with attachments to this email address, the attachments will be automatically saved in Koofr, along with the email itself.

Limitations? Each of your emails can be up to 100 MB (including all attachments), and the feature only works in Koofr, not in your connected drives (Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, Amazon Drive).

How is this feature useful in everyday life?
