Is safe to use or is there a similar functionality within itself?

Here is what I want. From my Gmail, or web mail or any other mail. I have a document. I email it to 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.
