For the last year or so I’m using Gmail as my email client. It is a great pleasure to have all email conversation online and always available. But Gmail is not intended to be used as a archive for documents and files. For this I use google docs.
So my project files sit in google docs and my email conversations about a project are sitting in Gmail. This is fine, but when looking for information it’s more convenient to have everything in one place. In order to achieve this you have to turn on the Create a Document feature on the Labs page in your Gmail settings. Then when you open a email a Create a document link appears on the upper right-hand corner of the page.
While this problem is solved. I’m still looking for a solution to archive pdf attachments to google docs.
