Did you add it to your Dropbox accoun in the first place Donald?

If you have this file in your Dropbox account, why don't you share a link to it with the people you'd like to share it with?

You'll then be able to review links and delete them here:  

https://www.dropbox.com/share/links

Keep me posted @donaldgott

Hey there @donaldgott - how are you today?

Since you didn't mention a specific device I take it that you're using our website to do this - correct me if I'm wrong please. 

If that's indeed the case, please go to your Files tab from the left hand pane when on your homepage, find the file i question and from the right hand options click on the "Share" button which is to the left of the ellipsis button (...). From there, you'll be able to add an email address when prompted to share it with the people you'd like in the first place. 

I hope this helps and please let me know how it goes!

Hey Walter, thx for your reply.  Yes, I'm using the website to try and share an mp3.  I guess I don't know how to add the mp3 file to my Share tab.  It was sent to me via email.  I tried sending it to a family member that uses Hotmail and it failed to send bc I think Hotmail won't allow you to send something over a certain size.  The song is only 14MB.

Hey Walter,  I succeeded!  I hadn't added the mp3 file to D'box yet, so that was the issue!  Thx for your help to a newbie!
