Yahoo has integrated cloud storage service Dropbox into its e-mail system, the company announced today.

The two companies have partnered to allow users to send, receive and manage Dropbox files 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," according to a Yahoo blog post. "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."

Dropbox reminded e-mail users that its service helps sidestep the 25MB file size limit on e-mailed attachments. Users can also save files directly to Dropbox from Yahoo Mail.

The integration is available in the English, French, Spanish, German and Italian versions of Yahoo Mail. Users who don't already have Dropbox can create accounts within the e-mail service.

Dropbox has a thing for e-mail these days. Just last month, it acquired the popular new app Mailbox , which said at the time that it was delivering more than 60 million e-mails a day.
