IMAP Integrations

IMAP Integration Details

Launched on Zapier April 1, 2013

Zapier combines Triggers (like "New Email") and Actions (like "Create Campaign") to complete an action in one app when a trigger occurs in another app. These combos—called "Zaps"—complete your tasks automatically.

The following IMAP Triggers, Searches, and Actions are supported by Zapier:

New Email

Triggers when you receive a new email.

New Mailbox

Triggers when you add a new mailbox to your account.
