How to connect an (Hotmail, Live…) email address to Slack?

Updated 2 months ago by Floriane

Thanks to the Microsoft authentification page, connecting an (also known as Hotmail and Live) account has never been so easy! 

To prevent your colleagues from seeing your emails, just connect the account in a private channel.
  1. Add MailClark to Slack if you haven't done it yet.  


    If you're already a MailClark user: 
    - Type help in a DM with MailClark and click "Connect services" 
    - Or go to and click the  sign in button on the top-right corner. 
  2. You’ll be asked to select the  type of account you’d like to connect. Click the Email icon
  3. Type your email address

  4. Type your passwork to connect to your account and accept the app permissions.

  5. Go back to Slack, you're ready to send and receive emails from there! 
    To help you get started, we've posted in the channel some useful information including:
    -  a video explaining how to reply an email from Slack
    - and a link to the Settings Page from where you'll be able to set up the options available for your account.

Remember, if you need help during the process, you can contact our team via a Slack DM to MailClark or at
