Are you an email junkie? Live in your Inbox all day long? Do you or someone on your team use Trello?

Enable this Zap and receive a special Zapier email address, to which you can Bcc, Cc or forward any email thread. Zapier will then automatically create a card in Trello for you from the email.

How it works

  1. Choose a special email address. Bcc, Cc or forward any email to this email address.
  2. When Zapier sees the email, we'll send it over to a Trello board & list you choose, as a new card -- subject, content, attachments and all!

Note: We recommend you only Bcc or forward your special Zapier email address. If you CC Zapier and someone "replies all" to the email thread , you'll wind up with duplicate Trello cards. Forwarding and BCC prevent this.

What you need

  • An email account you can send emails from.
  • A Trello account, and a board + list for your automatically created cards.

Got that? Alright! Let's get started.
