Our Zapier integration has arrived. If you’d like to try it out please get in touch. It is currently in beta so you won’t find it in the Zapier directory just yet. You can use mailfloss as both a trigger app (send data from mailfloss to Zapier) or an action app (send data to mailfloss from Zapier). Below are instructions for both.
How to use mailfloss as a Trigger App
