Yahoo Mail, Dropbox Join Hands to Bring an End to Attachment Limits

Posted By:

Yahoo Mail doesn't provide cloud storage solution like Gmail or Outbix provides, but it has chosen to provide an alternative, by partnering with Dropbox. This merger will allow Yahoo Mail users to access Dropbox files directly from the mailbox.

Now, attachments will no longer be restricted to 25 MB as they no longer are required to be hosted on Yahoo's servers. All attachments once opened, can be saved as files in the user's Dropbox account. This sure will help clear up some hard-disc space, won't it? Anyways, the Yahoo Mail does give you a choice to save files on your computer or cloud storage.
