    Gmail Drive (turn Gmail into an online storage drive)

    This might be of use to some people looking for online storage - http://www.viksoe.dk/code/gmail.htm



    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.
    Edit: Just realised this maybe be very old news, but i guess some people may have not seen it yet.

    Just ask yourself how would you address this as a web server?. Bearing in mind it has your gmail username and password required to access this...

    No way it could be used as a webserver. But i guess someone could write a page on another server with code that could automatically enter a username and password then somehow access files. But it would a very wierd and pointless excercise, especially as anyone could then alter stuff/change the password.

    It's a little slow in operation, even on a decent-speed ADSL connection, but useful sometimes.
    I think I prefer using things like Hamatchi instead...
