Email Drop Box: auto save attachment files in a folder

DriveHQ's Email Drop Box feature is an extension of the True Drop Box feature. A "True Drop Box" is like a mail drop box in a post office, allowing anybody to quickly and easily upload files to you securely. Users can visit the Drop Box URL and upload files into the folder without the hassle of creating an account.

It is designed for you to receive files from anybody, incl. potential clients, unknown users, one-time users, or too many users that you cannot enter all their email addresses.

With the Email Drop Box feature, anybody can upload files into a drop box folder via email attachments!
