    That is my goal. Additional requirements:

    • No action required, attachments are sent to dropbox automatically
    • Ideally not done locally. I.e they are on dropbox before they are are on my computer.
    • No third party installs on my computer. Open to gmail extensions but must be automatic, no 'click to send to dropbox'.

    What I've tried/What doesn't work:
    • IFTTT forwarding (can't validate the forwarding address trigger@ifttt.com)
    • Forwarding to another verified address which in turn forwards to trigger (seems to show as still coming from the original sender address?)

    A simpler question might be: how can I forward an email address and make it look like I sent it, while keeping the attachment?

    I'm also open to the option of doing this locally, although this is not ideal. I've tried using a saved search of the sparrow attachment directory but that just uploads the config for the search.

    Any brilliant ideas? I'm certainly running out.
