Upload to Box.net From Your E-Mail

Filed under: Box.net, Web Apps — Hogg @ 10:50 pm

For those of you using Box.net (a great way to get 1GB free storage, or more for cheap), I have some good news for you. You can upload your files to your Box via e-mail.

Just email upload@box.net with the file or files that you’d like to store or share, and they’ll arrive in a newly created folder called “Uploads from email.”

Box.net Blog

That sounds pretty frickin’ great to me.

And if you’re not using Box.net already, you should be.

  3. Man I have been trying to set up a command that uses the Blat email application. ( http://www.blat.net/ )

    It’s supposed to work in the right-click context menu thingy, under Send To… I have something like

    blat -to upload@box.net -f myname@company.com -attach %1

    I’ve configured Blat, it works perfectly if I want to send to a usual email address (i send stuff to my Google account to back it up on the fly), but it refuses to work with Box.net!

    If I compose a mail in Outlook Express and I send it to upload@box.net it works. What’s the difference? How should my blat message be formed so that upload@box.net likes it?
