A simple question: is it possible to extend the Dropbox token duration?
I don't know if 7 days is a technical insurmountable limit but this a big deterrent for all users here to use the Dropbox integration.

I have several complains from users about the annoyance to renew the token every week. Any other service that has a Dropbox integration doesn't ask for token renew so often.

Hi Luciano,
 
Thank you for the feedback on our Dropbox integration feature.
 
Long lived access tokens are insecure and are going to be deprecated by Dropbox in the future. 
 
Therefore, we are going to update Dropbox to handle the short lived tokens that are available in such a way that the user's interaction is not often required. Please watch for this feature change in the release notes of a future version of MDaemon.
 
Also note that you will have to make the appropriate change in your Dropbox App to use the short lived tokens once that feature has been updated in MDaemon. 

Best Regards,

Jonathan Ehman

I must correct my previous email. When I said "insecure" I meant to say, "less secure".
