When your collaborator sends you a new inbound email message about the project you share with them you would feel pretty bad if you were always the last to know what is going on.

Use Zapier to make sure that you are not left in the dark and collaborators get a prompt action in return for their messages. The first step is to ensure that their inbound email goes directly to the right place.

Note: This feature is built directly into Zapier, just forward your email to the customized email address you create with Zapier.

How It Works

  1. A contact sends a new inbound email
  2. Zapier adds that email message to GitHub as a new issue

What You Need

  • Email address to forward
  • GitHub account
