So I've been playing with this a little bit.  Is it possible to have the attached file names in the gmail storage match the file names as seen in SEMStorage file manager?  And/or in the subject or body of the email?  The alphabet soup filenames make it practically impossible to use the gmail interface at all for locating files...

The filename of the attachment in GMail will be the same as the name of the attachment that you have uploaded to SMEStorage. This name will be also in the subject and you can search on it. The body of the email will be "File from SMEStorage". So if you upload a picture called "google.jpg" and you search for Google in Gmail it will find this file.

If you import files from Amazon, the name of the file attachment will be the Amazon file name and this is the name that will also be in the subject. This may be less intuitive dependent on how you originally uploaded the file to Amazon. Services such as Jungle Disk give cryptic file names which can be difficult to search on outside of their service.

Because Gmail is really an email system and not a file storage system then once files are physically attached to mails they cannot be changed once uploaded. They can however be changed in the meta information that is held in SMEStorage.

Is it filenames you are uploading that are an issue or filenames that have been imported from Amazon ?

The body of my email is

Here is file upl_48f62e5ef1ff9.jpg from SMEStorage

and the subject is the same.  And the attachment is

upl_48f62e5ef1ff9.jpg

All this from an uploded file called 3_chignon_medley.jpg referred to as such in the file manager within the SMEStorage website.

Additionally, using the firefox add-on to upload files has resulted in many duplications of files, not just one being uploaded.

(Maybe it's the add-on that's messing with the filenames?)

Yes, the issue is using the Firefox plug-in with the GMail storage. This is a bug. What you are seeing is file duplication and the naming issue. We will do a bugfix on this and suggest you do not sue the Firefox plug-in with the GMail storage until we issue a new version.

OK, we made some slight changes in our API so that the Firefox uploader does not need to be changed. The problem with Gmail files in the Firefox plug-in should now be fixed, specfically that of naming and also of duplicate files.

Let us know if you have any problems.
