How to add contacts to your list of suggested contacts
There are several ways that names and emails get added to your list of suggested contacts.
Manually added contacts
You shared a file or folder with that contact, or they shared one with you
You tagged a contact in a Paper doc, or they tagged you
You invited someone to Dropbox, or they invited you
Note: When you remove your Outlook account from Dropbox, Dropbox can no longer access any of your Microsoft data. However, if you check in your Microsoft account, it may still show that Dropbox is connected to your account. This is a Microsoft API limitation, and Dropbox doesn’t have access once you remove Outlook from your account.
Can I delete individual contacts from my list of suggested contacts?
No. You can’t delete contacts individually from your suggested contacts list, with the following three exceptions:
If the contact that you would like to delete was imported from a third-party application, you can disconnect the third-party application, delete the contact from that third-party application, and then re-import your contacts to Dropbox
If you’re a Dropbox Business team member, you can contact your team admin to remove a member from your team, and their contact information will be deleted
If you’re using the Dropbox API (available to Dropbox Business users)
