A couple of manual searches every once in a while are fine, but if you're always using the same query to check for specific kinds of new messages, let this Gmail-Dropbox do the work for you. After you set it up, this Zap will watch for any new matches to your search on Gmail, sending each to Dropbox and creating a text file with the message contents, gathering what you need and keeping it safe.

How It Works

  1. A new email matches a search on Gmail
  2. Zapier automation adds a new text file to Dropbox
