Pull 2 Gmail
Are you using Gmails POP3 connection to fetch external emails? You might not be able to do that in the future anymore!
Pull 2 Gmail is a Gmail Add-on that is able to pull data from an external (cloud) email server that relies on OAuth to authenticate.
Since many services are deprecating Basic Authentication (username / password) the only way to connect is trough modern ways, like OAuth. This Add-on enables that option. Currently the app is in a closed testing stage. It will be released in Q4 2022.
The first service to work with this pull is Office 365.
How does it work
1. You add an account and enter your external email address, e.g. your @outlook.com email.
2. The add-on will ask for a few other settings:
- What label you want to use for incoming emails
- Do you want to skip inbox
- Do you want emails te be marked as read
3. After clicking ‘ADD’, you will be directed to the login page of the provider (in this version, only Office365).
4. With a successfull auth, your add-on will be able to fetch emails and put them in your Gmail box. You can click ‘fetch now’ to fetch immediatedly
5. From the settings you are able to set a time-trigger to check every 5 minutes
All information is stored in YOUR Google-account, not on our side. This means, settings, label names and authentication tokens.
