Multiple email addresses linked to account

I have multiple work emails that all filter into one account. Is there a way to add all of these to dropbox. Since I work across many facets of the business I have certain groups that will share folder/links with me but use the email that works for their needs. I would rather have everything link to one email instead of having to tell them to resend it to my dropbox email account.

Over time I have been invited to various shared folders to two separate email addresses. is it possible to merge my account such that if I am invited to a folder for email A or B it goes to the same account? I am currently balancing two accounts and it is a pain.

How do I do this?

No it isnt. But, no matter what address the invite is sent to if you're logged in to a computer with Dropbox on and click on 'Accept' it will join on whichever account you're signed in on

No, sorry.

However, if you are logged in to Dropbox when you get the email if you click on the link no matter what address it came to it SHOULD link to your account

It's totally normal for people to have more than one email address. So why can there not be more than one email address linked to a dropbox account?

Pro users recently could do this but it was removed.

Free users, however, never have been able to

I have many email accounts and 1 paid dropbox account that I tie to my personal gmail account. When clients / business relations want to share something, they usually want to use my business email address. I find it unprofessional and not practical asking them to instead share the documents to my personal email address. Why can't I have at least 2 emails addresses on the same account ? This feature is really missing.

I think this would be a really useful feature. I would say allowing any user to associate up to 5 emails addresses per account would help for many usage scenarios..

Yeah, I have multiple email addresses and this would save me a lot of headache.

This should be a priority feature, as people have lots of different email adresses now-a-day.
