The Email for Trello Power-Up uses the SendBoard bot to add a comment on the card when an email is sent/received. When you open the view/reply window, we fetch all of the comments and link them to the emails. If the SendBoard bot does not have permission to add comments to the card, emails cannot be linked successfully and causes an error.
