E-mail integration with chat, are there any good solutions?

published Oct 31, 2016 04:55   by admin ( last modified Nov 06, 2016 12:07 )

I need to set up a chat for a group where some people would prefer to use their e-mail.  For these people, any mail message they send, it should immediately be posted to the chat channel. For all chats posted in the chat room, there should be options to send them out to the e-mail recepient:

  • Ever time a chat is posted
  • In digest form, every
    • hour, 3 hours, days, 3 days or every week


It turns out to be hard to find such a solution. I am currently looking at Fleep - A messenger for your teams and projects which is it's own chat, and at Email to Slack – MailClark, your team’s bot for external communicationsk for Slack. So far this is what i have found.

  • I have invited a gmail address to Fleep, but that invite does not seem to reach the fleep mobile client for that person
  • I have not found a setting in Mail Clark for chat digests

There is also something called Zapier which is more of a toolkit and does not seem to have , but so far I am seriously thinking of creating one myself, but alas I do not think I have the time.
