Receive alerts, notifications or newsletters in Slack

← back to the Help Center

If you receive a lot of emails that you don’t reply to, or even don’t read, you can set up a Slack channel to receive these messages and easily monitor them. By creating a specific channel for each sender, you can sort through what you receive and not lose the important emails in the crowd.

Set up MailClark in your preferred channel

First things first, add MailClark to your Slack team if you haven’t done it already.

From the channel click on the settings gear on the top of your Slack window, select ‘Invite team members to join...’, then choose MailClark from your list of team members.

Or you can use Slack’s invite command—type /invite @mailclark #channel-name

Once invited, MailClark automatically creates an email for your channel in the format channel@team.mailclark.ai. Use this address with the apps that send you alerts, or to subscribe to newsletters.

Pro tips

  • Create a forwarder from your usual email address to this new MailClark one to receive its email in this Slack channel. Depending on your email service provider, you can specify the messages to be forwarded by the sender’s address, so you can choose to only receive certain emails in Slack.
  • If you click the ‘Reply’ button below an email you receive in your Slack channel MailClark creates a channel dedicated to that email’s sender. So all emails from a certain address will be organized together, and specific newsletters can each have their own channel.
