Is www.sendtodropbox.com safe to use or is there a similar functionality within dropbox.com itself?

Here is what I want. From my Gmail, or web mail or any other mail. I have a document. I email it to xxxxxx.mydroboxemailaddress.@dropbox.com and Bam... It shows up in a my dropbox in a folder.

It validates the from email address, so I don't get junk.

The subject is used to choose a folder, or I will settle for One folder for me to organize later.

It seems like this type of functionality should be a given.... But I can't seem to find a way to do it.

Send to Dropbox uses the Dropbox API, I have not personally used it in a long time. You could use the file request feature. https://www.dropbox.com/en/help/9090
