Get an extra 1GB of Dropbox storage just by linking the Mailbox app to your account


Ever since Dropbox bought Mailbox earlier in the year, we’d seen little evidence of the two companies working together until recently when the Mailbox app was updated to include Dropbox attachment support. Now they’ve added an extra incentive to have both iOS apps installed. Users can now gain an extra 1GB of storage in the cloud just by linking the two services.

To get your 1GB of free storage, make sure you’ve signed up for a free Dropbox account. Head on over to or install the free iOS app to register. Then:

1. Install the Mailbox app on to your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
2. Log-in to your Gmail account on Mailbox.
3. Link your Dropbox account to the Mailbox app. To that that you just need to go in to Mailbox’s settings menu, and you’ll see an option to link it to Dropbox. Once you’ve done that you should get a notification/email telling you that you have an extra 1GB of storage space.

Go through all those steps and you’re all set. It worked instantly for me, so be sure to let us know if your storage goes up.

    Worked for me! I had linked it previously so I had to unlink and then link it again. Now I have one more GB of Dropbox space :)

    @Shubhamdatta Awesome sauce. I don’t actually use Mailbox, so I installed the app, linked it, then deleted the app again.

    Guys, Copy is excellent and cheaper than Dropbox. Copy is the new Dropbox now. I use both currently, but Copy offers you more space for free than Dropbox. Both are good and both come with the desktop client to sync your files to their cloud servers. Check it out and use this link to sign up for Copy to get 20GB free instead of the regular 15GB

    Worked for me also, however I’ll probably uninstall mailbox since I don’t really have a need for it. I just hope that doesn’t cause my 1gb of free space to disappear

    Use Copy instead, you get 20 gigs free right off the bat and it works identically!!!
