I have regularly been able to attached documents from Dropbox when creating an email on OSX Mail app. However, now I am not able to. Steps that fail are below:
Please, any solution? I have found discussion of problem with Outlook and referral to Microsoft, but there is no MS Office involvement in this issue.
Thanks in advance.
This is a great question and a helpful response.
Since I do not normally use the Files app, I had not checked it. Sure enough, when I did, I saw that Dropbox was not enabled on Files. When I enabled it there, it appeared back in the Mail app.
i don’t know why it went away, but this solved my problem.
Hi Mia, what version of iOS are you running on your iPhone?
The iOS Files app is something that allows Dropbox to save files to the iOS device, at least temporarily, to use in other apps.
More information about this can be found here.
Let me know if this helps!
I'm having this issue as well. I have been regularly adding documents from my Dropbox to emails in the iOS Mail app, and suddenly am unable to. The difference for me is that I am able to see choose Dropbox, and the folder and file, but the file will not download to add to the mail; it just stays in waiting to download. I have updated the Dropbox app and the latest iOS. I am currently using iOS 12.2.
Anyone have a fix for this?
Hi, Jay - I’m having the same problem described above by EMay. I’m running iOS 12.1.4. The only files that will download are ones that have the download symbol in the upper right corner. But those are often older versions of the docs I’m trying to attach into the emails. Appreciate any suggestions you may have. Thanks!
