How to get to someone's Dropbox?

I want to drop files on someone who told me:

 

      "My dropbox address is this email address; you can share them with me that way.  Thanks"

 

He did not send me an invite or a link.

 

So, knowing his email address, how can I access his dropbox to drop the files?

Create a shared folder in your own account and invite them to it using the email address they provided you.

For a shared folder, yes. If you just want to send them files, they can send you a File Request. It would allow you to upload directly to their account without the need of a shared folder, or even a Dropbox account.
