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.

thanks. So some sort of invitation IS needed. Answers my question, thanks.

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.
