BoxCreate Text File

If you need to keep a copy of Gmail messages, you can automatically save them to Box as text files automatically. Zapier can monitor a Gmail account and create a text file from email data, as the emails are received. You can even specify a mailbox or email label to drive this integration, to only save your most important messages to Box.

How It Works

  1. A new Gmail message is received
  2. Zapier creates a text file in your Box folder

What You Need

  • A Gmail account
  • A Box account
