You can't - because you cannot send folders via email. Thats an Outlook (well email in general) restriction, not Dropbox. 

You need to either send a link to the folder via www.dropbox.com/help/167 or download it and zip it and send the zip file.

Hi Mark, thanks for the reply and what about sending a link to the folder via Outlook ?

It seems very complicated and long winded to download and zip it.

Harry, to send a link to a dropbox folder is a trivial matter, although it may seem like a complicated workaround to you: using your browser at www.dropbox.com  click on the folder name, then click on the SHARE button. Now  you will see the link HIGHLIGHTED. Use control-C to COPY the link.  Now open your OUTLOOK email client, compose an email, and control-V to paste the link into Outlook email.

Hi everyone, 

 

Are you still using Outlook? If so, are you interested in trying out a new Dropbox add-in we're working on for MS Outlook? You can read more about it here.

 

Thanks!
