Send Large Files in Yahoo Mail with Dropbox

If you’re a Yahoo Mail user, things just got better because the company teamed with Dropbox. This makes it easy to send and save large attachments.

Recently Yahoo and Dropbox partnered up and now you can easily send your large files – over 25MB — from Dropbox to your email contacts. It also allows you to save attachments you get directly to Dropbox. Here’s how it’s done.

Start by connecting Yahoo Mail and your Dropbox account. Create a new account if you need one, or sign in if you already have an account.

sign in or sign up

If you have 2-Step Verification enabled for your Dropbox account – which we highly recommend – you’ll need to enter in the extra security code sent to your phone.

2-Step Verification Code

After you’ve connected your Yahoo Mail with Dropbox, sending files from Dropbox is easy. Compose a new message, and click the attachment dropdown in the message body, and select Share from Dropbox.

Attach from Dropbox

You’re Dropbox will open up and you can go through and select the files you want to send.

Select Files to Share

Then the attachments will be added to the the email and look something like this:

Shared Files from Dropbox

Then when the recipient gets your email, they can click on each attachments link and they’ll be brought to that file on the Dropbox page to download.

While no many people – in the US anyway – aren’t heavy Yahoo Mail users, this feature could make you at least try out. For heavy users of Yahoo Mail, this is just another cool option.
