How can I add files to a mail without including the Dropbox link

Explorer | Level 3

Hi I’m new to this I want to include my files to send it by mail but it always put the Dropbox link in my mail...and says it comes from Dropbox. Is there any way to send it without this information? Just the file...? Thanks!

Hi @Roberto22, thanks for posting on the Community!

 

Just to check, are you sending this email via your desktop machine, or via your mobile device?

 

If the latter, ‘sharing’ a file via Dropbox means it would create a shared link, which is what you’re seeing. You can instead export the file to your email app using these steps to then send it on.

 

If I’m misunderstanding anything, feel free to let me know!

Of course I follow this steps but.... the link stills in my email...definitely Dropbox doesn’t works to send Hotmails and this is disappointing

Please could you let me know the exact steps you’re taking to export the file on your device in order to understand why you’re still getting a link to the file.

 

Screenshots would help greatly!

Try clicking on the Photos button in the reply box to do so, and then you can upload images there.
