Pst Mail v.2.7.0 adds support for the upcoming changes in Dropbox servers. As of June 28th 2017, Dropbox will make changes that require modifications in the apps that access their servers. Pst Mail v2.7.0 implements those changes.

If you have dropbox files that were added before version 2.7.0, they will continue to work. However, if the pst files changed in the server, and you want them synchronized to your device, you will need to remove them from Pst Mail and add them again. This need to be done only once.
