Hi @johnnyrfingers@Jules3 - welcome to the Dropbox Community; I'm always happy to see new faces around! 

As per your query now Johnny, Jules is correct; as long as you're sharing folders with others, they'll be able to see your email address and name (as registered on your Dropbox account that is). 

I hope this clears things up for you while we're always a post away if you need us. Should you come up with any additional questions; just fire away! 

Happy Friday to both!

Hey, thanks. I always usually check with support with every community question I ask (for any service), so I hope you don't mind me saying that. Just wanna be sure. Thank's though. Won't mark it as "Answered" yet, but if I get the confirmation I will. Thanks
