NOTE: If you want to convert a single email as PDF to Dropbox, please check the following support note: Save a single email to Dropbox.

cloudHQ can save automate saving of multiple emails (i.e., all emails in the label or emails matching query). This means that cloudHQ will continuously monitor your Gmail and save emails matching criteria you have specified.
