Not getting Password reset email link

Explorer | Level 3

Hi all,

I did not manage to receive Reset Email from no-reply@dropbox.com. Already check the spam folder and Global whitelist no-reply@dropbox.com. After several tried to login with incorrect password, my account is blocked.

When I try to Reset my password again,  @ https://www.dropbox.com/forgot?

I got this error:

Too many incorrect attempts. Please try again in a few minutes.

How long I need to wait? Any support team able to assist me?

I urgently need to access to my dropbox account

Thanks

Dear Fiona,

 

Case has been closed.  Support team has sent me the Recovery Link from another email provider login-support@dropbox.com , instead of no-reply@dropbox.com

 

Thanks for your help

Sorry to hear you can't access your account @wkloke

When you get the too many attempts error you need to wait for 24 hours to reset the password again. Our team cannot send a password reset email in the meantime. 

If you are not receiving your reset password email tomorrow when you try to reset it again, then please contact our team at: https://www.dropbox.com/support

Is there a computer, that has the Dropbox desktop application installed to access your files from, for now? 

I hope there is!

Dear Fiona,

Thanks for your prompt response, after 24 hours, I no longer get "Too many incorrect attempts. Please try again in a few minutes." instead, "If a Dropbox account exists for @Email , an e-mail will sent with furthers instruction."

However, I still not receive any Recovery Link after 4 hours. Already check spam/log files, whitelisted no-reply@dropbox.com

Can you send the Recovery Link direct to my Email instead of dropbox.com/forgot

 

Thanks

I have the same problem as discribed above. My email address is [email address removed as per Community's Guidelines]. It is obviously an business email and it will highly appriciated your prompt response.
