The deal will make it easier for mail users to send, receive and manage attachments which will be stored by Dropbox online.

In a blog post David McDowell, senior director of product management, Yahoo! Mail stated: "Starting today, Dropbox is available within Yahoo! Mail. This integration allows you to share and store files more easily, whether they are vacation photos or important documents like tax returns and research papers.

“And, because files can be stored in your Dropbox account online, it's easy to find the files you want even when you are away from your desktop.”

"You can add stuff from Dropbox to any e-mail message and save attachments back to Dropbox, too," Dropbox wrote in a blog post. "Since this integration is Dropbox-powered, you can even send that big album of vacation pics without worrying about the 25MB file limit."

The integration will be available in Yahoo webmail in English, French, Spanish, German, and Italian. Yahoo users not yet registered for Dropbox will be able to create a Dropbox account from within Yahoo Mail, Yahoo's blog said.
