When it comes to getting things done quickly, automation is the name of the game. We’ve looked at IFTTT before, and a new batch of updates has introduced a number of options that can be used to automatically do things with files that are sent to your Gmail address.
One thing to be noted is that if the attachments have a virus that gets past Gmail's filters, you're probably doomed. It'll automatically sync to all your PCs.
Does it save files in a maildir++ compatible format?
