[HowTo] Send Email Attachments directly to DropBox

DropBox is free online storage service available. It supports many useful features. The one, which I found useful is Camera Upload. If you have installed DropBox app in your smartphone, the photos you click, videos you shoot will be automatically uploaded online.

You can earn bonus space just by liking their Facebook page, following them on twitter or by referring your friends to DropBox.
