SquadMail Saves Email Attachments to Dropbox (and We've Got Invites)

SquadMail, dubbed the "Dropbox of email," syncs and shares email folders between different users. The service now has a cool new feature for both individuals and groups: automatic saving of email attachments to Dropbox.

SquadMail's Dropbox saving feature works just like its core email syncing service. After setting up a new folder on the SquadMail site and choosing to sync it with Dropbox, SquadMail creates a new label for your email account (Gmail or other IMAP email) with the name of that folder. Then, to have attachments for emails saved to Dropbox, all you have to do is tag emails with that label.

With filtering, you can automate saving attachments to Dropbox. So, for example, you can create a filter for friends and family with the "has:attachment" option in Gmail and always tag it with your Dropbox folder label. Voila, all the photos and other docs from them are automatically saved there.

You can also forward emails to the SquadMail-provided email address for that folder. I found this to work immediately, whereas the label method can take a few minutes for the sync to happen.

Finally, as before, anyone you share that SquadMail folder with will also have that folder and any messages in it in his/her email account.

The Dropbox feature is in private beta right now, but the first 5,000 Lifehacker readers can try it out today using the link below.

My Instructables going to be simple by delivering it with simple english, straight forward, and have a lot of pictures. You don't even need to read, just scrolling down the pictures will give you the idea.

Living in a hostel and sharing bathroom will obviously tend to make your bathroom look awful, not organize and messy. I had this problem (which is the toothbrush) and i start to make my own solution. so, This Is It! it does help me, hope it helps you too.

Wooden Axle

If books, TV shows, and movies are any indication, it seems that civilization is headed for certain collapse. Once the fall happens, wheeled transportation is going to be at a premium. We may be fleeing zombies, or farming with horses, or trying to get a car running on moonshine and tree sap -- whatever the case, wheels, and the skills to make them, will be valuable to have. 

This post-apocalyptic wheel assembly uses a wooden axle and spare tires (donuts) to provide the basis for a handcart, simple wagon, or trailer. Short of metal, and tools, this is also a perfect repair for a broken trailer. After I made it, I realized a solid axle has some trouble turning, so I would recommend actually cutting the axle in half and mounting each wheel independently so that a two-wheel arrangement can pivot.

The parts for this are all recycled, and very cheap, if not free. Sustainability starts with re-use, especially when the factories collapse and no new ones are being made!

If you enjoy this Instructable, check out my new website at Object Guerilla for more projects and musings on the end of the world.

You will need these materials:

2 compact car wheel hubs
2 compact car spare tires (donuts)
Several pieces of scrap plywood, appox. 4 sq. ft. in total
Hefty chunk of douglas fir, spruce, oak, walnut, hickory, pecan, or similar 
Wood glue
Handful of 1/4"-3/8" through-bolts, nuts, and washers
Handful of 1/4" x 5" lag bolts
1-1/2" hole saw
Wood glue

You will need these tools:

Table saw
Jig or Bandsaw
Block plane
