Re: Add second email address to account

Add second email address to account

GideonK
Explorer | Level 4

I have just started using the DropBox for Business subscription – though still on the trial – and I am trying to connect a second version of my email address to my account. 

 

About a year ago we change our email setup from <firstname@company.com> to <firstname.lastname@company.com> and I get emails (and invitations to share folders) to both versions of the address. So I am trying to add an alias to my account so that I don't have to have two accounts.

 

Does anyone know how to do this or a work around?

 

Thanks for any help.

 

Gideon

That's not possible. Each Dropbox account can only have a single email address associated with it.

As Rich mentioned, each account is limited to a single email source. However, as you noted that you are on a Business trial, you can navigate to your Admin panel and invite your other email address to join your team, which would consume one of the licenses, but would add that email address to the team in order to share the team folder, etc. 

 

Just remember to watch the trial expire date, so you can either upgrade to Business or cancel before the end date!
