What is Email Sync Integration?

CallProof can now be configured to monitor email accounts and find emails with known CallProof contacts. Specified folders will be searched and any emails that match a contact's email will be saved within their contact record. All other email is ignored.

CallProof uses IMAP email servers to sync emails. Most email providers supply imap servers with SSL (encryption). Common providers are listed below. Users may need to contact their IT department, manager, or CallProof support to get their IMAP server details.

When adding an email account, it may take 24 hours for the previous month of email to be processed by CallProof. Once the past emails are processed, CallProof will check several times a day to keep email current.

Emails will appear within the contact's record under the Email tab. This will give users quick access to view email conversations with the contact.
