Any way to have Email to Board show the email address it came from?

Hi everyone,

I just discovered that trello boards have a unique email address so you email the board and it automatically pops up in the column of your choosing. The only issue is that it doesn't show you which email address it came from, only the subject and description lines. This is a deal killer for something like ordering where frequent customers ask for things and we know them by their email address.

Any way to incorporate this with an add on or see it without manually going to the email? Thanks!

Hi @KRepair ,


maybe the Crmble Power-Up could help you out to solve that.

You could create your Leads (Zapier to Crmble) and then track the sent/received emails received with those leads directly in/from the Trello card.

You could also book a demo here and see with a member of our crew if that works for you:


Another option could be taking a look on Gmail by Cardbox or Sendboard, which are also cool options for managing your emails from Trello.


Hope it helps!

If you need anything else just let us know!

Thanks. I did see the sendboard option which seems like it'd work out (it does cost extra, though). We're so close to what we need since it's pretty simple, and it's really just seeing which email things are being sent from that would complete it for us. 

Hi @KRepair 👋 Christl from SendBoard here - makers of the Email for Trello Power-Up.

Our PowerUp enables you to send and receive emails in Trello. Attachments and correspondence are linked to the correct Trello card from where you can view and reply.

It sounds like our free plan will be sufficient for what you need but you might find other features such as merging cards, automatically sending emails, saved replies, managing contacts and customising your email address useful too. Compare pricing and plans on our website.

You're welcome to pop any questions over to or simply add the PowerUp for a free trial.

Hope that helps!
