Firstly, make sure you have the correct address to forward/redirect your email to. You can get this from the ‘Mailbox’ area of SendBoard settings. Depending on your access rights, you might require some help from your I.T. team to set up the forwarding rule.

You will need to set up a forwarding/redirect rule so that your incoming emails/replies are sent to your Trello board to create a new card/attach to an existing thread.

Multiple mailboxes can be forwarded to your Email for Trello address. Any emails you send will come from your Email for Trello board address. Have a look at this article to set up a custom email address.

Note: When setting up your forwarding rule, you will receive a verification email to verify the email address. It's possible that our verification email can end up in your junk folder. The verification email will come from verify@sendboard.com - check and make sure this is added to your safe senders list, and then try the verification again.

Here are some forwarding/redirecting guides for different email providers.


Gmail / Google Workspaces (Email forwarding)

Set up a simple forwarding rule.

  1. From your Gmail account, go to Settings.

  2. Click the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab.

  3. In the "Forwarding" section, click Add a forwarding address.

  4. Enter the email address (your board email address) you want to forward to and follow the prompts.

  5. A verification message will be sent to your board address. It will look like a new card on your board and contain the verification code you need to verify.

  6. Once you've added the verification code in the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab and set up the forwarding rule, remember to click Save Changes at the bottom of the page.
