Email-In Your Documents and Files for Google Docs and Spreadsheets

For users that had started using the Google Docs and Spreadsheets in our Google Apps for Education project, you can now start new online documents (spreadsheets coming soon) by emailing them directly to your unique this email address allocated, you can see your specific unique email address in the “upload” file option of Docs and Spreadsheets, after you successfully log in, they are of the following format:


These steps were given in the Google page:

To try it, start a new email to the address shown above and:

* Enter some text and send the message.
– The message text will be entered into a new online document.
– The title of the document will be the subject of the email message.
* Or, attach a supported document (see above — spreadsheets coming soon)
– Each attached document will be converted to HTML and appear as a separate document.
– The title of each document will be the file name of each attachment.
– With attachments, the message text itself will be ignored.

You can use this as a quick way to get a whole bunch of documents online at one time, or as an adjunct to how you currently collaborate with others (by CC’ing this email address when you pass around documents).

Please Note

* This email address is unique to you.
The address itself is long and complicated-looking just to help keep people from guessing it.
* You should receive an email confirmation for each document.
If you don’t receive a confirmation message, that means the document(s) didn’t make it online. If this is the case, please make sure you are using the email address shown above and that your e-mail is functioning correctly.
