Since I normally work with everything poosible, including dorpbox, from a 
coansole (I hate GUIs) I don't have a really good answer.  However one way 
to be sure it is going out is to log in to your dropbox account with 
firefox and see if it is there.  I have found dropbox to be quite reliable 
so I don't check every time.  If I am really not sure I will grab my phone 
or another device and tripple check to see if it shows up there.
