You can automate “Reply” with your emails using the following two plugins.

  • Email IMAP Read/Mon
  • Adv Email Send


  • To automate “reply”, please use these two plugins as a pair



(warning) Note: They do not need to be used back-to-back like shown above. As long as the attribute data of the original email has been held in the CSV created by Email IMAP Read/Mon, it will work.


Here are the steps.

1. Obtain attributes from the original email using Email IMAP Read/Mon including “message id”.


  • Mail Operation: Select [READ]
  • : Set all these parameters as needed.
  • Return value: Make sure to select [CSV], give the csv a name, and check the “first row…” option.


Above will give the automation scenario a csv data table which holds the attributes the of the original email. The variable group name in this example is “maildata”.

This is the nave given to the CSV but it is also the bot variables group name. The headers of the CSV will look like below,

time

from

From name

to

to name

subject

Body_file

attachments

msgid


Again, the headers also work as the variable name of the bot-variables.Therefore, retrieval of the data will require a notation like {{maildata.time(1)}} ---- Please also refer to Email IMAP Read/Mon help contents.


2. Use the attributes to send back email when using Adv Email Send.

You must use 3 pieces of csv data that were obtained by the previous Email IMAP Read/Mon.


1) {{maildata.subject(1)}}
2) {{maildata.from(1)}}
3) {{maildata.msgid(1)}}



  • Subject: Make sure the subject is IDENTICAL to the original email by just using the data obtained by Email IMAP Read/Mon plugin.
  • Mail To: Make sure the return email address data is IDENTICAL to the sender of the original email.
  • Rep Msg Id: Make sure to enter the MESSAGE ID from the original email.
