Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

affixa gmail yahoo uploadLifehacker wrote an interesting article about an application called Affixa, that is free for private use* (Windows only) which allows you to right click a file on your system and select "Mail Recipient" and that file will be uploaded into your Gmail or Yahoo email account. Select "Launch Gmail after creating a draft message" and a new email message will popup in your default browser, containing the file you attached from Windows' context menu. For a detailed howto on this matter, visit lifehacker's article.

Affixa can do other stuff too, like upload directly intro Drop.io and works the same way as stated above, with Outlook and Thunderbird and others.
