Logging In with Email Address No Longer Valid

Logging In with Email Address No Longer Valid

I have several Dropbox accounts, and I'm trying to clean them up. One has an email address that is no longer valid, and it cannot be recreated. I have the password. It works. The problem is Dropbox sends the login confirmation code to the invalid email address. The online help I've read indicates that I should be able to log in, but I can't. Is there a way to log in?

Hi @patlaw 

 

If its sending a secure code to the email unless you can get the email address active again there is no way to log in.

Thanks, Mark. That's very unfortunate and will certainly play into our decision whether to use Dropbox or a competitive product.
