SaneBox to Offer Smart E-Mail Filtering System to Manage Large Attachments

By Jody Ray Bennett February 22, 2013

Boston-based SaneBox has upgraded a feature from its latest service that helps customers tame large file attachments. The upgrade to its SaneAttachment suite “integrates with the Box file storage and content-sharing platform, allowing users to quickly and easily share large documents, including presentations, photos and videos.”

But what exactly does it do? A review of SaneBox states, “The service is surprisingly similar to Google's Gmail Important label system, which is supposed to show you e-mails based on how you label them. But SaneBox works better by doing the one thing Gmail won't that's taking most of the control away from the user.”

Essentially, SaneBox offers users two separate inboxes, sending unimportant e-mails to one of those accounts. And this will not only make shuffling through a single account full of junk and garbage and listserv e-mails, but it will also make sending, managing and storing massive attachments easier. One report notes why this is of increasing market importance:

“Online storage has become a big business, as is evidenced by the big, multibillion dollar valuations and initial public offering talk for both Dropbox and Box. So any business that is integrated with their services is worth watching in relation to the growth that is happening in the larger industry. And just as Dropbox announced it was doing, SaneBox, which started out supplying its services for Gmail, is now going after the enterprise market to address the pervasive problem of too many e-mails, and the lost productivity in the workplace associated with them.”

One great thing about the service is that customers retain complete automony in how their attachment will be stored, and can even opt to display the link to the file on Box or within an e-mail itself. And everything adapts to DropBox.
