I need multiple drop box teams for different customers. It is not practical for everyone to create multiple e-mail addresses for each dropbox. Is there a solution for one person to be on different teams without having multiple e-mail addresses?

Server_Align: Thank you for your post. So, if I read it right, 1. We would create a second Windows User Account on each PC and add the Dropbox Company2 Account to this, 2. There would never actually be any need to log into this second Windows User Account as the files from both Dropbox Company1 and Company2 Accounts will be auto-synced in the C:\DB\ folder? Thanks!

Into folders in the C:\DB folder.

And that of course was just my exampled location, if you feel confident enough go to the %userprofile% folder of user1, create a "Dropbox (company2)" folder to act as the folder for user2's dropbox, permission it for both users to have access, then setup user2 and point it to the %userprofile% folder of user1

* issue with that might come up with permissions on the %userprofile% folder of user1 so that might need permissioning as well, and kinda hides whats hapepning a bit so Im against that *

 

* "Dropbox (company2)" is what ever the second dropbox account actually names the folder, its been a while since I had a Bussiness account, as we only ever used one of the five accounts anyway and just had it for the >1TB space, now Pro has 3TB.

Hoping for an update on accessing two business accounts on my Mac Desktop.  It's been a little over a year since my last inquiry.  Anything new on that front.  I really don't want to switch from Dropbox.  Thanks!
