While trying to share, get popup that says "One or more names or email addresses entered are invalid

When I try and share a file, I get a popup that says "One or more names or email addresses you entered are not valid."

Have not had this problem before.

Tried sending to one person - worked fine

Tried sending to two people - got popup

Hey there @John12758
 
Could you please clarify if you’re copy-pasting the email addresses individually or in bulk? Have you tried typing in the emails, instead?
 
When you typed in email A (for which you didn’t get the error) and then email B (which is when you got the pop-up message), did you then try sharing with only email B too?
 
Thanks in advance!

Yes I did.  I tried A&B, which didn't work, A which worked, and B which worked.

Copy/pasting in bulk

Thanks for getting back to me on this, @John12758
 
Since you’re copy-pasting the emails in bulk, could you ensure that there’s a separator after each email (for example, a semicolon)? 
 
For example, could you type in userA@e.mail; userB@e.mail; and then paste the email in like that?
 
Otherwise, could you try copying and pasting them separately? 
 
Let me know how it goes!

Great question.  Should have put in picture.  I tried with both commas and semicolons as separators (since that makes a difference is some email apps)

Just to clarify, are you able to apply the emails now or are you still having trouble, @John12758
