Dropbox and MailboxWhat happens when you combine a long-time favorite cloud storage solution with a hot new mail management tool? We’re about to find out, as Dropbox has just acquired Mailbox.

According to a report in The Wall Street Journal, the Mailbox app will continue to be a separate product, and Dropbox will look for ways to include Mailbox technologies in its own service.

We don’t know many other details yet, but for people who love the anywhere accessibility of the cloud and the charms of the two services individually, this sounds like the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Want to know more about Mailbox? Here’s our review of the app.

Here’s the full text of the announcement from the Dropbox Blog:

Today we’re really excited to welcome the Mailbox team to Dropbox.

Like many of you, when we discovered Mailbox we fell in love—it was simple, delightful, and beautifully engineered. Many have promised to help us with our overflowing inboxes, but the Mailbox team actually delivered.

After spending time with Gentry, Scott, and the team, it became clear that their calling was the same as ours at Dropbox—to solve life’s hidden problems and reimagine the things we do every day. We all quickly realized that together we could save millions of people a lot of pain.

Dropbox doesn’t replace your folders or your hard drive: it makes them better. The same is true with Mailbox, it doesn’t replace your email: it makes it better. Whether it’s your Dropbox or your Mailbox, we want to find ways to simplify your life.

We’re all looking forward to making Mailbox even better and getting it into as many people’s hands as possible. There’s so much to do and we’re excited to get started!
