One more service supporting GMAIL, the Gmail Drive , this is the new technology which uses shell extension. Called as Gmail FS, Basically u need to sign up for this service first, go to www.gmailhost.com and then install gmail host software.

GMail Drive is a Shell Namespace Extension that creates a virtual drive in the Windows Explorer, allowing you to use your Google GMail account as a storage medium.

It allows you to do basic file manipulation, such as copy and delete of files inside the GMail account. Because it is a Shell Extension, the interface you work in is Windows Explorer itself.

GMail Drive appears as a virtual drive under your My Computer folder in Windows Explorer.

When u copy files on this Drive it sends a mail to ur gmail account with this uploaded file attached. The e-mail appears in your normal Inbox folder, and the file is attached as an e-mail attachment. GMail Drive periodically checks your mail account (using the GMail search function) to see if new files have arrived and to rebuild the directory structures. But basically GMail Drive acts as any other hard-drive installed on your computer.

Because the GMail files will clutter up your Inbox folder, you may wish to create a filter in GMail to automatically move the files (prefixed with the GMAILFS letters in the subject) to your archived mail folder.
GMail Drive is still an experimental tool. There’s still a number of limitations of the file-system (such as total filename size must be less than 40 characters). Since the tool hooks up with the free GMail Service provided by Google, changes in the GMail system may break the tool’s ability to function.
It cannot guarantee that files stored in this manner will be accessible in the future. 

But anyways, next time if u want to keep ur resume on Internet, don’t send mail to urself using another account , just upload ur resume on Gmail Drive.
isn’t it cool.
