I;m brand new and have a simple question

New member | Level 2

Hello there. How do i send a file to someone's email if they are

not a member of Dropbox? I know this is probably very simple but

I'm older and don't have the internet intellect that some people 

take for granted.

THank You!!

PS i have a free account, not sure if that means anything

Hi @TimTimmyTim, thanks for posting on the Community!

 

Generally, the simplest method to share files with people, without them needing their own Dropbox account, is to create a shared link.

 

You can then copy the shared link and paste it into your email which you can send to someone.

 

If you need any more details, feel free to message back!
