Removing email addresses from Dropbox "address book"

Removing email addresses from Dropbox "address book"

How do you remove email choices that Dropbox serves up when you start typing in a name when you are going to share a file/folder? I have erroneous email addresses that I'd love to remove from that list.

no function exists for this.

This would be great, but unfortunately, that button appears to be broken.  I just tried it.  I did disconnect my linked address books, but my previous recipients still show up when I try to share a link.  I'm almost certain there is a bug wherein it doesn't seem to be deleting cached previous recipients.

Also, once you've clicked that button once, it doesn't show up again.

I, and several Team members, are having this same issue.  As the Admin, I'm the one they're complaining to.   I'm getting nowhere with DropBox Support.   This is so basic - I can't believe Support can't fix this. 


It's unacceptable and I will be approaching my superiors about finding an alternative to DropBox. 



Has Dropbox solved the problem Re: deleting or editing auto corrected address entries? I note some conversation about this issue in 2016 but I don't see anything indicating that an actual fix was found. I have an email address in my addressees which is identified with an incorrect name.

So still no fix for this?
