U of I Box, Dropbox feature

Is it possible to create a dropbox in U of I Box?
There are 2 options that mimick a dropbox feature.  The first option is easier to implement, but might run into size limitations. The second option requires a website, blog or social networking services that supports HTML embed code.

Option 1:

Upload files to U of I Box via email: Uploading and Downloading Files and Folders: Email Upload
  • A unique email address is generated. 
  • IMPORTANT: This email is not managed by UIUC and is not suitable for sensitive information transfer.
  • Only attachments will be uploaded.  Text in the body of the email will not be uploaded.
  • The cumulative size of attachments cannot exceed 80 MB.
  • The folder owner and sender will receive a notification when files are uploaded successfully.
  • Collaborators will receive notifications, if upload notifications are enabled for the folder.

Option 2:

Use the Embed widget from a web page that supports HTML iframe embed code: Box Upload Embed Widget
  • Requires a website, blog or social networking service that supports HTML iframe embed code.
