Automatically get in touch with people who send interesting Slack messages. Use this Zap to do the work for you: whenever you star a message in Slack, Zapier will look up the sender of that message and their email address. Then Zapier will send them an email. Now, you've made a new contact with a single click.

How this Slack-Gmail integration works

  1. You star a Slack message
  2. Zapier finds the email address of the user who sent that starred Slack message
  3. Zapier sends that user an email via Gmail
