Saving emails in Dropbox

Explorer | Level 4

When can we expect to enable us to save directly all emails in Dropbox.

I understand this possible fort attachements but I am and surely not the only one interested in saving automatically emails in Dropbox.

Thanks

Emails are nothing more than files of a particular format. Use a mail client that allows you to export email, and you can already save it to Dropbox. Otherwise, this would be on your chosen mail client to accomplish; not Dropbox. The developers of your mail client can use the Dropbox API to create such functionality.

Dropbox never releases roadmaps of featues @Baud and, being honest, its not something I can see them bringing in - Dropbox is all about collaboration and not using emails (think Paper/Comments etc.)

Thanks for your return.

I do not wand to use Dropbox as an email box.

I would like to be able to copy automatically my email box into Dropbox for security.

The  only would is to copy and past in a word sheet and then save in Dropbox but this is not quick.

Has Dropbox fixed this yet?

Evernote has had this feature for years.

There's nothing to "fix" because there's nothing broken. You can already export emails from your chosen mail client to Dropbox, if your mail client supports it.

Thanks Super User II. 
There is a feature that competing products have, and many users are asking for in this forum and others for years. 
Certainly seems like a much needed fix is required.

Happy Monday everyone!  

Just wanted to add this discussion I had about emails saved in Dropbox. If your emails are in Outlook, this might help: https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Files-folders/Can-no-longer-save-outlook-emails-to-Dropbox/m-p/37608...
