How to Use Gmail As a Dropbox

One of the most convenient ways of transferring a file from one computer to another is simply to email it to yourself. An email service like Gmail is accessible from any computer with an Internet connection, so you can attach a file from one computer and download it to another. Any file smaller than 25 mb can be transferred in this way.
