Launched only 1 month ago, Mailbox benefited from a great media coverage of its service. The application, which operates with limited registration on the waiting list, experienced a few hiccups at startup. But success seems to be there, with 60 million emails exchanged every day to date.

A few weeks after the update of its version, it is therefore a new turn for the start-up Dropbox launched in 2007 by Drew Houston, Arash Ferdowsi, graduates of MIT, and its 100 million users.

Dropbox has about 1 million users. The amount of the repurchase remains unknown, but the 14 people of the Mailbox team are integrated into the Dropbox staff.
