    Hi There!

    I know on MacOS you can export a mail to PDF. Is there any way to do it on iPad IOS?
    Typically important emails, receipts, invoices and so on we export as PDF and save it on our shared Box account from Mac. Is it possible to do this from iPad?

    Thanks in advance!

    Yes, you can do it... however it is one of the more arcane procedures of iOS. In a nutshell, you click on the forwarding arrow while viewing an email; select print; pinch outward to make the small preview take up the whole screen (this is the step that is hard to remember); click on the sharing icon (arrow out of box); click Save to Files; choose iCloud drive (typically). This will put a PDF of the email onto your iCloud drive, and other applications can grab it from there.
