How to email attachments to my Dropbox account?

How to email attachments to my Dropbox account?

I'm trying to automatically send attachments from my Gmail account to my Dropbox account. I had the email address and verified it, there's a folder for email attachments in my Dropbox folder and I forwarded an email to the Dropbox email but I can't find it or the attachment anywhere. Someone told me I need a third-party app, but I doubt that and think I may have missed something simple. Appreciate some help please (I'm, using a mac if that helps).

Hi Jay

 

Worked it out now (I think) if I send it from Gmail on my apple email client it doesn't work, but if I send it from the webmail it does.

 

Thanks

Hi @beegee49, thanks for posting on the Community!

Are you referring to this app to email files to your Dropbox account?

Are you getting any error messages or other information?

This will help me to assist further!

Thanks, yes that's the app, I've activated but I'm not seeing the Dropbox symbol in the bottom corner.

When I follow your link to the app, it says "not allowed by your team, go to the admin console".  I am the admin and when I go to admin console, cannot find the "email to dropbox" app (or anything similar) on the app list.  Please point me in the right direction!

Not sure if I fully understand what you want but, If you go to your personal account settings and scroll down there's a setting under preferences "Email to my Dropbox" select "turn on" and you'll be given an email address quite long and odd-looking add that to your Gmail contacts and when you receive an email with an attachment forward it to that email address and the attachment should appear in an email attachments folder that will automatically be set up in your files. You'll find that this works from the web email but in my case, not the Apple email client. Hope this helps in some way.

There is no such thing in my preferences/settings.  Previous commented linked to the "email to dropbox" app" that you have to connect.  My reply was meant for that commenter, noting that I cannot access that app.
