How do I import my contacts into Dropbox?

You can import your contacts from Gmail, Yahoo, and Outlook to your Dropbox account. Once you connect your email account to Dropbox, your contacts auto-populate when you share files, folders, or Paper docs. Dropbox also saves contacts that you share files or folders with.

  2. Click the avatar at the top of any page.

  5. Under Connected services, click Disconnect next to the services you want to remove.

To reconnect a service, click the Connect your [service name] account link by the name of the service you'd like to link to your Dropbox account.

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.
