SugarSync Announces Upload by Email Feature

Backup and sharing service SugarSync has announced today a new upload by email feature. The service will allow users to send files to a dedicated SugarSync address and the file will instantly be synched across all devices. This will let you backup attachments by forwarding them to the address, and also collect documents, photos etc, and have them available from your PC just by emailing them to SugarSync. The company has also released a 500gb storage plan that will run $39.99/month or $399/year. For more information on SugarSync for BlackBerry, head to



A little pricey, but nice features.


You can signup for a free 2GB account:

It's not a trial or anything. Tried this app on my Storm2 however and found it awful. Removed forever.


For letting me know I own a 9550.


interesting, but a little too much for my liking.


Pfft!! $39/month?! That's ridiculous.


$3.99/month... maybe. $39.99/month... outrageous.


I use this service and LOVE it. I recently switched from Live Mesh because of the smartphone apps they offer.

First, the 2GB account is free. For my business documents that is more than sufficient.

I use multiple PCs and smartphones. This keeps my business file synchronized between all devices. I love to be able to send a file from my phone when I'm out. The one thing I can't get working right is viewing PDFs on my Blackberry from the program. It doesn't work in the app. I have to email it to myself to view it on the phone. I think that's more a problem with my phone than with their program.

My favorite thing about the service is that the sync is nearly real time. If I put a file in the folder on the PC it uploads right away. Live Mesh took a while. Live Mesh gives more free storage and lets you sync more than 2 PCs, plus it has an easy remote desktop feature.


Docs2Go and a much better seamless experience and cheaper per user, no photos though!!


Good review – there are a few recent changes as of June 2011:
You get 5GB of space with the FREE version.

Also if you use the below referral code you get a bonus 500MB extra on top of your Free 5GB!

But we need SugarSync support for BlackBerry PlayBook--let's buzz SugarSync for one!
