How do I send email from Slack?

Updated 1 month ago by Floriane

  1. Go to the Slack channel you connected your email address to.
    (Still need to do this? Click here to connect an email account.)
  2. Type @mailclark email@address.com (the email address of the person you want to reach).
    You can add several recipients if needed. Later on, you'll have a chance to add Cc/Bcc as well 
  3. After this, MailClark will ask if you want to send the email from the current Slack channel or if you want to create a new channel for this email.
    (This is a good opportunity to start categorizing and organizing your emails in Slack. For example, if this email is related to a specific customer's account or a new project, then it might make sense to create a new channel for the project and keep this email in that Slack channel. )
    If you’ve already written to this person from Slack, MailClark will tell you in which channel(s)/thread so that you can pick up the conversation where it left off.
  4. Type out your message.
    To create a link break, press shift + enter. 
  5. Then you have an option to preview your email.
    From there you can:
    - edit the from or to email addresses,
    - edit the subject,
    - attach a file. 
  6. Once you're ready, hit send and you're done!
