2. Select the More Options drop-down arrow to view a menu of options

4. In the Folder Properties dialog box, select Email Options and then check the Allow uploads to this folder via email check box.

5. A new textfield with an email address is displayed for you. Select the text and copy the email address. Now simply copy emails with attachment (or) instruct others to copy their emails with attachments to this email address.

6. Click Save to close the Folder Properties dialog box

That’s it. Now each time someone sends an email with an attachment to the address you gathered in Step 5, the attachment is saved to the Box.com folder.

This capability from Box.com is extremely handy when you are seeking templates/inputs from multiple stakeholders, journal all your email attachments, or simply email your attachments to the folder.
