A little precaution goes a long way. Set up this Email-Google Drive integration Zapier will take care of those backups for you — and make them shareable, too.

During configuration, you'll be able to choose a custom email address to which you can forward messages from any account. Each new email we receive in this way will trigger the automation, saving the email contents as a new text file on Google Drive, so its always accessible on the cloud.

How It Works

  1. A new email is received by Zapier
  2. Zapier automatically saves a new text file to Google Drive
