  3. Click Settings.
  4. Click the Notifications tab.
  5. Under Paper, uncheck the box next to any emails you don't want to receive.

You will still receive an email notification if:

  • Someone shares a doc with you

  • You're @mentioned
  • You leave a notification unread for 2 hours. To change this, click the bell icon in Dropbox Paper and then Mark all as read.
