Cannot added new distribution list email to new Dropbox - Says they're already a member

Cannot added new distribution list email to new Dropbox - Says they're already a member

ChrisR
New member | Level 2

Hello.

 

I've been a Dropbox user on the personal side for many years but have just setup a new Dropbox Business account for something stuff I'm doing at work.

 

When I try to add a brand new distribution group's email address as a member of my team, I'm given this message:

 

"xxx@xxx is a member of another team and can't be invited."

 

There's no way this is true since this is a new email address I setup and that hasn't been used by anyone else for anything.

 

How can I resolve this?  Thank you.
