We are truly grateful for the support of our users over the last two and a half years. Unfortunately, the Attachments.me service is going to be shutting down on November 11th.
Users who upgraded to one of our paid plans on our website will receive a prorated refund. Users who upgraded through our iPhone App can request a refund through iTunes. Any data and personal information will be permanently deleted after shutdown.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. Here are a couple of services we recommend for replacing our functionality:
Yesware: Look at their link tracking feature to replace our download tracking.
IFTTT: Look at their Gmail attachment recipes to replace our automatic filing rules.
Cloudy for Gmail: This chrome extension gives you access to Dropbox and other cloud storage services to get links to files.
Thank you for everything,
The Attachments.me Team
According to the Harvard Business Review, we spend the equivalent of 111 workdays dealing with email in one year, and exchanging documents is one of the most common tasks. At Attachments.me we are changing the way you share files. In the last year we have seen 591% user growth, and are now moving upwards of 3.2 million attachments into cloud storage a month.
With each cloud storage solution we support, we expand our reach. We give more users the ability to efficiently access their files. So today we are very happy to announce another cloud storage solution available, Egnyte!
We have a very diverse user base. We have individuals using our search to find old photos in their Gmail. There are office administrators organizing files into Dropbox. We have entire law firms keeping their client files in sync with Box using our automatic filing rules. Large nonprofits use Attachments.me with Google Drive to keep their organization running efficiently.
Lately we see more and larger businesses deploying and using Attachments.me. This is what drew us to Egnyte as the next storage solution to support. Egnyte offers a secure, enterprise friendly, hybrid cloud solution that powers over 30,000 businesses. Their recent integration with Google Docs offers an enterprise security layer on top of Google’s document storage offering for Egnyte’s many Google Apps enterprises. With our integration, those businesses can now bring Egnyte right into their Gmail experience.
Businesses on Google Apps will now have access to all their files stored in Egnyte while composing an email. They can quickly move their attachments into Egnyte without leaving Gmail. Plus, by setting up automatic filing rules, these businesses can keep all their email attachments synced in Egnyte, ensuring they have quick access to their important documents from everywhere.
We’re very excited for this launch and the growth of Attachments.me. In addition to our integration with Egnyte, we also announced a new iPhone application today that makes it easy to email files in bulk from multiple folders and cloud storage providers, all from your mobile device.
Look for more business friendly solutions from Attachments.me in the coming months. For now, Egnyte is available today in our Chrome and Firefox extension, our iPhone application and our website.
Money can be an ugly thing. But not when you’re spending less of it.
Which is why we’re thrilled to announce all new pricing plans! We’re now featuring an Organizer plan for $6 per month and an Unlimited plan for $9 per month. With the Organizer plan, you’re able to search and store an unlimited number of attachments and create an endless quantity of Automatic Filing Rules to securely send files to where they need to be. The Unlimited plan offers the same features, but with added sharing analytics and read receipts to ensure that none of your files fall through the cracks.

I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Heather from Sound Advice Consulting Services, where she and her co-workers have perfected the art of working from home. As a consulting service that operates remotely and offers a contagious level of excellent client engagement, Sound Advice receives more candidate resumes than Bono has sunglasses.
For them, working remotely as a team requires a few things:
- Reliance on cloud technology as their prime source for storage.
- Transparency in knowing where their files are going and where they’ve been.
- Pajamas (apparently).
Aside from the pajamas, Attachments.me is able meet the needs of an essentially paperless office and, in this case, automate the workflow for Heather and her colleagues. That mostly involves setting up Automatic Filing Rules to send incoming resumes to a Dropbox folder that everyone can access. From there, files are organized and shared across the team. And since Heather works from the Chrome extension, Attachments.me is able to work behind the scenes so that she can have more time to enjoy the view from her living room.
Have a customer success story of your own? We’d love to hear about it! Get in touch: email@example.com.
You asked, we listened.
We’ve made it easier to get the most out of your Attachments.me account with referrals. Right now, free accounts allow for 75 attachments to be moved to the cloud account(s) of your choice. We realize that can be limiting, so we’re offering alternatives. Visiting attachments.me/referrals offers a variety of options to automatically invite Gmail contacts, Facebook friends, or Twitter followers of your choice.
Doing so unlocks a few things:
1. An extra 25 attachments for each successfully signed up user (up to 10 users/250 extra attachments).
2. Simpler file sharing between your contacts.
3. A free Attachments.me t-shirt.
No kidding! A real t-shirt. Signing up 10 or more of your contacts will not only add a permanent, one-time 250 attachments to your account, but you’ll also look good doing it. See?

With over 100,000 active installs, our Chrome extension is the most popular client for Attachments.me users. Given this, we’re excited to announce that we’ve just released a major update to it:
Sharing Has Never Been Easier
When composing a message in Gmail, it’s now much easier to share your files using Attachments.me:
- Share multiple files, from across Dropbox, Box, SkyDrive, and Google Drive, with a single link:
- Share files from your local Harddrive, side-by-side with files from the cloud:
- Control how people access the files you share, by setting the expiry on a link:
This update to the Chrome Extension adds a ton of functionality, and reduces the number of steps necessary to share files through Gmail.
Give it a shot, and let us know what you think.
Good news, everyone! Spreadsheets are better than ever now that you can share and view them with Attachments.me. Sending Excel files allows for the recipient to see a beautifully rendered and interactive preview like this:
From there, files can be viewed, downloaded or sent to a linked Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, or Skydrive account. Either way, you’re going to be a spreadsheet-wielding hero (cape not included).

We’re proud to announce the rollout of a sweet new feature on the Attachments.me website called notifications.
The Notifications feature lets you know when and how files are being moved between your email and cloud storage, includes real-time error messaging, and provides a tangible log of your Attachments.me activity.
Notifications are available right now on the website. For phase one of the rollout we’re only reporting on trouble with moving an attachment, but soon notifications will be the place to see all activity between email and the cloud.
Stay tuned for notification integration into our apps on other platforms as well. We can’t wait to show you what we have in store!
The first phase of Attachments.me was about helping deal with the mess of attachments we get in email. We upgraded Gmail and offered fast ways to get your files into cloud storage. Our work was well received. For example, our automatic filing rules transfer over 3 million files a month into the cloud and that number continues to grow.
Today we are launching phase two of Attachments.me, we’re calling it Attachments Everywhere.
Attachments Everywhere adds to our website and our popular clients for Gmail and iPhone, giving you a great new way to share your files. Share documents and files from your hard drive or already synced Dropbox, Box, Skydrive and Google Drive cloud accounts.
Attachments Everywhere gives you fine grained control of each file you share with someone. We provide you the tools to know when the receiver has viewed or downloaded a file and our advanced security features ensure that only the intended recipient can see any document you share. We’ve been working very hard to bring this new way to share your files to life and we can’t wait to get you using it!
Attachments Everywhere is available now here.
