  1. To enable email uploads for a folder:

    1. In the All Files window, right-click the folder and select Settings.
    2. In the Uploading section, next to Email Uploads, check Allow uploads to this folder via email. Under Upload Email Address, Box displays a unique email address. To upload files into the folder, send files to this address. You can copy this email address to your clipboard and enter it as a contact in your email address book, or simply paste it into the "To" line of an email with attachments.
    3. In the top-right corner of the window, click Save Changes.

It will then display the email address you can use.

Please note the following: 

  • This email is not managed by UIUC and should not be used for sensitive information transfer.
  • Upload via email only works for file attachments, the body of the email will not be uploaded to Box.
  • The cumulative size of the attachments cannot exceed 80MB. Please see this article describing U of I email size limits: Email, Size limits on email
  • The folder owner and sender will receive a notification that files were uploaded successfully.
  • Collaborators will also receive a notification if upload notifications are enabled for the folder.
