Start Connecting with Mail (IMAP) Connector

Last updated Tue May 24 2022

Set yourself up for success with Boomi’s Mail (IMAP) Connector, which includes how to:

  • Set up the Mail (IMAP) connector
  • Send and receive emails with attachments
  • Move an email to another folder


The Mail (IMAP) connector can be used with any email provider that supports SMTP and IMAP to perform SEND, RECEIVE, and MOVE functionalities. The Mail (IMAP) connector uses the same protocols that are most widely used to send and retrieve email messages through a web browser.

This solution demonstrates how to use the Mail (IMAP) connector to receive email and attachments, send email and attachments, and move email messages between folders.

Boomi makes it easy to filter emails by any number of variables and automatically action them. This eliminates the need for a team member to have to manually action emails that have a common workflow.

Other Boomi connectors can be leveraged as part of the workflow with the Mail (IMAP) connector. Attachments can automatically be stored to a cloud or local disk. Multiple autoresponders can be set up for emails that meet different criteria, which can include attached files, data from other connected software, and more.

Received emails can also be collected and processed in other software programs. All emails sent to an account could create tickets in a help desk software that can be directly actioned by team members without needing to check the email. Boomi can also alert team members of specific emails using team messaging software such as Slack or Teams.

Email is reported to be a very common “time trap” for team members. Using Boomi, you can reduce the amount of time that team members spend on email and transfer the information contained in the email into the software where it needs to be actioned.
