Zoho Mail provides multiple options to manage the attachments. You can view the files in Zoho Applications, if they are in compatible formats. You can choose to upload the document to the cloud storage of your choice or download them localy.
When you receive documents, spreadsheets or presentations as attachments in your email, you can view the contents of the attachment using Zoho Writer, Sheet or Show using the View options in Zoho Mail. You need not download the attachment or need any installed software to view the contents of the files in the attachments. This removes any software dependency for normal office documents or images which you receive as attachments in your emails.
This also removes the clutter in 'Downloads' or helps you manage your email attachments better.
The following table provides you the list of attachement types and the Zoho Viewer used for the viewing the file on the go. Further you can save these files to Zoho Docs, in case you want to make changes to the received files and send it to someone.
