Can I share my Attachments folder?
Short answer: No. Unfortunately, at the moment you cannot share your Attachments folder with other Dropbox users due to Send to Dropbox using an “App Folder” as its application type.
Dropbox does not allow you to put “App Folders” into “Shared Folders”, and vice versa. however, Dropbox is working on a solution that allows you to authorize with Send to Dropbox under “Full Access”, which means you’ll be able to set the destination of your attachments to whatever location you’d like (shared folder or otherwise).
However, this option is not trivial to architect and will take a bit of time to work out and correctly implement. So sit tight and look forward to a solution in the coming months.
How secure is Dropbox access to information that can only be shared as required?
Dropbox uses a standard for third-party app authorization called OAuth.
OAuth is designed so that you can authorize third-party applications without giving them your username and password.
When you sign up or sign in, you’ll notice that you’re being taken off of Send to Dropbox’s website and over to Dropbox.com.
This allows you to authorize the Send to Dropbox application.
Dropbox then sends us a token which we use to make requests to their servers on your behalf.
If you ever feel the need to revoke our access to your account, simply delete Send to Dropbox from your Dropbox.com settings.
Send to Dropbox does not enforce a size limit.
However, many SMTP servers do enforce an outgoing limit. For example, at the time of writing this, Gmail limits outgoing emails to a size of 35,882,577 bytes (~34MB), so they may reject emails larger than this before they even reach our email servers.
