    Because it tells me that my password or email is wrong and I just don't know what else it could be!

    There is no option to reset this.:(

    I already went to the 'forgot' link and entered my email and it states there is no account with that email!

    But I have that email in the app info @ iTunes. And I have tons of files in my drop box on my computer here!

    What is going on?:(

    Neither link accepts my email. I don't exist. Should I just create a new account?

    I have to ask. Are you absolutely sure the email you used for DropBox is the right one. Do you have multiple email addresses? Try them all. It does not need to be the same email as is used for iTunes. I have 6 emails and I am always getting them mixed up. It's easy to forget which one you used.

    I figured it out. You know that little drop box down at the bottom of our computers? I clicked on it instead of opening it and went to Preferences and it said my old email!

    The one that doesn't exist anymore ~ the one that I can't update 13 apps with! But in iTunes it says my new email under Drop Box.

    I hate computers. I hate them all today.

    So now I can open it. But I will never be able to update Dropbox, Leigh.:( I thought Pages was the only important one....

    Well, if that email address is no longer in use, you should just copy all your stuff out of your dropbox and into a new temporary folder on your desktop. Once you are sure it is all on your desktop quite safe, you should just delete everything in the dropbox.
    Then, create a new DropBox account with a working email and configure your desktop to sign into the new one....
    Then move all the stuff from your desktop folder into the "new" dropbox and just forget about the old account altogether. Then you can at least keep change the password whenever you like!
    Bit of a hassle, but worth it if you want to update your details in the future.

    But I still wouldn't be able to update Dropbox. I never noticed if it didn't update when I did my updates. But I guess it did not as it is under my AOL email.

    But you think if I delete this Dropbox account and open a new one, but keep the orig app, I would be able to update?
