Mail + Drive Integration (Attach/save files)
It would be amazing to be able to do the following:
- Attach files to Proton Mail directly from Proton Drive (as link or as file)
- Save files from emails to Proton Drive
- Mass save attachments to Proto Drive
Add a button in Proton Mail to quickly upload mail attachments into Proton Dirve.
And/Or link Proton Drive folder with a generated email address to save attachments by forwarding messages to this email.
It should be easy to
1) save an attachment from an email directly to Proton Drive
2) attach files from Proton Drive (not by link)
For 1), it might be cool to define a folder somewhere in the settings and instead of downloading attachments from mails, theyre directly stored into this folder on Proton Drive with a single click.

Es wäre super wenn Anhänge auch in Proton Drive gespeichert werden könnten.
This is a great idea!
Can we also think about asking Proton for long-term paid plans instead of the short 24 months one, to keep control over pricing. I have created a petition under this header:
LONG TERM Plans - LIFETIME Plans !!!

Also, the other way around, save attachments to Drive
In Proton Drive I want to be able to also see files attached to emails in Proton Mail and quickly find an attachment, for example: I can ADD LABELS (e.g. description, color) to each attachment, so that I can then FILTER and quickly BROWSE those labelled attachments.
Once I have found the attachment I am looking for, I want to be able to download or share it.
This feature should work without modifying the original emails, including the original attachment.
This feature will greatly enhance my productivity.

I consider critical to save time, have the ability to save in Proton Drive a file, coming in my attachment’s on Proton Mail.
It would be great if we could also create a simple workflow that automatically saves attachments from specific emails to specific folders in Proton Drive.
Example: You receive you monthly account invoice from Company A, The flow extracts the attachment (specific file or all - maybe filter by filetype) and stores it in a specific folder in Proton Drive (Company A/Invoices)

Open Proton Drive in a separate tab or window.
Locate and select the file(s) you want to attach to the email.
Download the selected file(s) to your local device.
Compose a new email or reply to an existing one in ProtonMail.
Use the attachment option in ProtonMail to upload the file(s) you downloaded from Proton Drive from your local device.
By downloading the file(s) from Proton Drive to your device first, you can then attach them to your ProtonMail email as you would with any other file.
Please note that ProtonMail continuously evolves its features and functionality, and it's possible that since my knowledge cutoff, they have introduced new integrations or capabilities that may allow direct attachment from Proton Drive. I recommend checking the official ProtonMail documentation or contacting ProtonMail support for the most up-to-date information on this matter. https://incompreneur.com/

This kind of inter-app/program operability is a huge issue. It will promote loyalty among Proton users. Anything to make Drive easier to use would be most welcome.
YES! Thank you!

When an attachment is too large, Proton could automatically propose to store it in the Drive and automatically insert a link valid for 30 days in the email.

Voice over service refers to the process of recording a voice to be used in various media productions, such as commercials, documentaries, and animated films. Voice over artists use their voice to convey a message or portray a character.

Even a button next to an attachment to save it would be better than nothing. An email filter action would be nice too.
YES!!! this would be a big time saver
