Just do not know how to find account details from command line.

Hey there (@Kaman), thanks for your patience! I’ve consulted my resources & I can confirm your initial thought; in other words, as mentioned here: If you're running Dropbox on your server for the first time, you'll be asked to copy and paste a link in a working browser to create a new account or add your server to an existing account. Because this information isn’t stored, you will not be able to retrieve it at a later date. 
 
Hopefully this answers your question, however please do let me know here in case you have any follow-up questions & I’ll do my best to check back on this discussion asap. Cheers!

Hey there (@Kaman), I’m wondering if you’ve had a chance to check back on this resource to get going with that. From there, could you elaborate a bit on what info you’d like to gather, so as to make sure I’m following-up with you correctly? 
 
Thanks a lot for taking the time to clarify matters for me; rest assured that I’m here to help as much as possible. Have a wonderful Friday ahead & I’ll be awaiting your next reply!

I have checked the link you provided.

This is where I learn how to setup dropbox on command line.

BUT I cannot find a way find my "ACCOUNT EMAIL".  That's the reason I post this question here.  I guess you need update your linux client to add this function?

Ah, there could have been a refreshing issue on my end, so I had only seen your first message here (@Kaman), please accept my apologies for the slight delay in getting back in touch. I’ve asked whether there’s an option to retrieve this detail using the Command line & once I have an update, I’ll circle back to you on this discussion. I hope this is-even slightly- helpful to you!
