Purpose

This component receives emails from a user defined email address. It triggers the containing workflow and passes on information from the received email.

How to use

All you need to do is to specify the email address and select the information you want to extract for further processing. You choose whatever address you like, but it has to be @maxflowmail.com, for example order.mystore@maxflowmail.com.

If you want to process email from other addresses, for example myaddress@gmail.com, you can set up rules from your original email provider (Gmail in this case) to forwards whatever emails you want to the Maxflow email address. Most email providers should let you setup email forwarding.
