Opportunity to try out our Dropbox add-in for Microsoft Outlook

Hi all,
 
As valued members of our Community, we'd like to invite you to participate in our upcoming alpha program for the Dropbox add-in for Microsoft Outlook. 
 
Please note that this is only valid for Outlook versions newer than 2013 and using Exchange.
 
If you agree to participate, you will get exclusive access to the Dropbox add-in for Microsoft Outlook which allows you and your team to:
 
- Share any file, big or small: No need to fill up people’s inboxes. Just attach a Dropbox link instead.
- Take your files anywhere: Access your attachments from any device by saving them to Dropbox. 
- Keep everyone in sync: Attach a Dropbox link and they’ll always have the latest version.
 
If you’re interested in helping us develop the future of Dropbox, please complete the form below so we can get you setup:
 
 
Please note, participation is voluntary and you may opt-out of the program at any time.
 
Thanks!
Ed

This is great news!  We are just now switching back to Dropbox after using Sharefile for a year or so.  Dropbox sync app works infinitely better than Sharefile, but I really liked their Outlook Plug In!  I just filled out the form to sign up for the beta testing.  Hopefully I get selected!

I would like our company to have access to this as well. Sooner rather than later as we just moved away from a service that had this feature already.

So does this add-in only work if you have exchange hosted with microsoft? Have a local exchange server and use Outlook 2016. From what i can tell, this add-in is not universal and only works with Office365 exchange accounts.

Hi @jwagner360,

 

The add-in is designed to work with email accounts hosted on local Exchange servers. According to Microsoft's documentation, there might be some additional configuration required: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook/add-ins/add-in-requirements#mail-server-requirements

 

Let me know if that article helped -- happy to dig deeper if you're still having trouble installing the add-in.

 

Thanks,

Daniel
