QuickBase Inbox

Forward emails to QuickBase

This site forwards email messages to a QuickBase table.
The site will create the QuickBase table for you, or you can specify the table and fields to use.
The email messages come from cloudmailin.com.

Setup and Test

  1. Sign up for an account on cloudmailin.com.

    Your cloudmailin account should forward email messages to this site, like this:

    https://quickbase-inbox.heroku.com/<quickbase_username@email.com>/<quickbase_password>/-/-/-/-/-/-/-


    Note: All the /- parts are required.

  2. Send a test email to your cloudmailin email address.

    Your email message must be in plain text format, not HTML format.
    This will create a QuickBase Email Inbox application, with an Emails table containing one record for your test email.

  3. Your QuickBase Inbox is ready!
