Notifications of accepted invitations

Happy 2018 from Vancouver, Canada. slightly smiling face

I have a simple, free account. The only e-mail notification I receive comes after I have signed in to my Dropbox account from a computer I don't ordinarily use. I believe it informs me of the date/time and browser I used to access my account from the new computer, though it's been awhile since I've done that so my memory may be wrong. Apologies if so. Regardless, I have checked my account settings and cannot find a way to receive notifications when people I invite to folders I have created access them. Is this feature not available?

Thank you and I am sorry if I've missed something obvious.

Hey @Speedball,


Thanks for reaching out and Happy New Year!


Email notices are no longer sent when invited members of a shared folder accept their invitation. 


Keep in mind that you can see more about your current email notifications here :
