Letterbox bridges your Gmail Inbox and your Slack by letting you handle all of your incoming emails without having to leave Slack.
Adding Letterbox to your Slack Team:
To get started, head over to letterbox.co and
Add to Slack .
In order for Letterbox to provide all the features that a standard inbox offers, you'll have to authorize a list of Slack permissions that allow for features like replying, archiving, forwarding, deleting, etc.
Adding your Google Account to Letterbox:
Soon after authorizing Letterbox to your Slack team, you'll be met with a new Letterbox Channel in your team (
#letterbox-username) where you'll have to add a Gmail account.
After clicking the button
Google Sign In – you'll have to authorize Letterbox to View and Modify your emails so that all of your incoming emails get bridged to your new Slack channel.
After authorizing Letterbox + Gmail, you'll get a success message within Slack that LetterBox has completed setup.
You're all set! 📧 Within Slack, you'll begin to receive your emails as normal. 😎
