I need to be able to send files to specific folders in dropbox via email.  Is this possible?  I do not want to have to login to 64 different accounts to update the files.

That's not possible with Dropbox. There are third-party services that use the Dropbox API to allow you to email a file to a folder in your account, but it's to a single specific folder.

You might also be able to use something like IFTTT to build this yourself, but you'll likely still be limited to a single specific folder.

Yes, for Business accounts. The feature is not available to Starter or Personal accounts.
