What is Email for Trello? Email for Trello is a Trello Power-Up made by SendBoard. It connects your inbox to Trello so that you can send and receive emails directly from your board.

Receive an email on your Trello board

Any email sent to your SendBoard board address will create a new card on your Trello board with the email attached as a comment.

Tip: You can set up a custom email address to receive emails using your own, existing email address as new cards in Trello.

Replies to emails sent from your board will automatically attach as a comment to the correct card. If a card is moved to another board in the same workspace, the email reply will be correctly attached to the card if the Email for Trello Power-Up is added to the other board.

Receiving an email to an archived card

If a reply is received to a card that has been archived, SendBoard will automatically add the card back to the board and the email will be attached to the card. If the card is deleted however, it will not be possible to attach the email to the card.
