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.

How to Create Your Promotional Calendar (The New Year Planning Episode)
Biggest Takeaways You Don’t Want to Miss:

Time to hit the ground running for your 2018 planning. And I mean starting TODAY.
This episode is meant to be your goal-setting workshop in a box—I’ve got everything you need to plan for 2018: How to do it, the questions to ask, and plenty of examples to inspire you to take action.
If you have felt like in the last year you are flying by the seat of your pants, or you have been frustrated with your promotions, or you have no idea how you’re going to make money NEXT YEAR, then it’s time to listen up and take action. [1:15]
By the way, the focus is on the first six months only, because you may want to repeat some of the success you saw in the first half of the year. I’m all about the rinse and repeat! Also: Opportunities will come your way, and I want you to have some flexibility in your planning for those.
Rules of Engagement Upfront:

I want you to take an entire day to do this process. I know, I know. No bellyaching. I don’t want you to feel rushed or pressured to get it done.
Pick a “special spot” to do this. If you want extra credit, book out a hotel room or a co-working space. If you’re going to do this at home, promise me you’ll send everyone away so you have the space to create, focus and think.
Don’t do this alone. Engage your virtual assistant or anyone on your team (either via Skype or fly them out!). I understand that you may be a “one-person show”—I encourage you to then find a friend or a peer that can be your sounding board.
Grab a whiteboard or a big sticky board. You’ll need a space to put your notes.
The freebie for this episode is EXACTLY WHAT YOU NEED TO PLAN:
