How to Use Cloudy to Attach Online Files to Gmail Messages. By now, you are using email for all sorts of things; not the least of which is attaching pleadings and files to email correspondence to other attorneys, and for filing things electronically with court systems. Email is now as much a part of law practice as typewritten letters were in the Eighties and Nineties. I can remember when some attorneys were proud to tell me that email was for secretaries and associates. They refused to use it. Oh my. If I could get in a room with those guys now, the I Told You So would be 100 feet tall. But, I digress. Cloudy is a Chrome add-on that permits the attachment of any file anywhere to your GMail messages. If you are like the rest of us, you are storing files in several cloud locations, such as Google Drive, Microsoft Live Drive, Dropbox, and others. This cool little add-on gives you the option of attaching a file directly from the cloud service. No more downloading it to the drive before you can send it. Very nice.
