Trigger

Description:Emit new event for each new email in a mailbox
Version:0.0.4
Key:imap-new-email

IMAP Overview

Using Pipedream's IMAP API, developers can automate interactions with their email inbox, enabling serverless workflows that perform actions based on incoming emails. This could include parsing email contents, triggering events upon receiving emails from specific senders, attaching labels, and much more. By leveraging IMAP, Pipedream can act as a bridge between your email and other services, streamlining processes that would otherwise require manual intervention.
