Hi Jane, we are having exactly the same issue as the user above with the same error message.  Tried all the things, no deal.  We can still access our folders directly, but cannot click through via notifications which is a major headache for tracking new uploads and comments! If you can help us too that would be great! Thank you.

Hello.

I have the same problem when I try to click a shared mail-link from my customer, to get access to their business-data. So I can´t start working on this project. Of cause I have also done all the tests with delete-cookies, browser-restart, notebook-restart, check other browsers (edge, chrome) ... but nothing works.

Please help me.

Warmly, Christian

Hey Christian (@ChristianEnengl), as I’ve located your open support request on our system & I can see that you’re in an open discussion with my colleague there, let me re-direct you to this correspondence, as my coworker can access your account specifics directly on our tools. I’ve also made sure to include a copy of your comments there, in order to gather all relevant details in one email chain. 
 
I hope that this gets resolved soon for you & I’m always here in case you’d need further assistance in any way. Thanks for choosing Dropbox & have a fruitful week ahead!
