Password reset/deleted email address

Password reset/deleted email address

New member | Level 2

I need to access my Dropbox account but I've forgotten the password.  Unfortunately, the email account that is associated with my Dropbox account has been deleted by the host due to inactivity - I stopped using it because I was getting too much spam.  Now I can't access that email address to receive a password reset from Dropbox.  Is there a way to access my Dropbox account and change the email address to one I can access?

Unless you are signed in on a device already then no, you'll need to get access to the email again.


Could you try re-setting up the same email again?
