Technical Tip – Using Email as Storage

We’re not suggesting that you fill up your email account with large and important business files, but on the occasions where you need to save something and take it away but you don’t have e.g. a memory stick, you could email the information / files (as attachments) to yourself.

If you have a web based email account for example you can send and receive emails anywhere that you have access to an internet connection. Your email account can therefore act as your own online storage area.

Examples of popular web based email accounts with plenty of space are www.hotmail.com and www.googlemail.com.
