Email to board - error message

I set up the email to board tool but it appears to be sporadically not working. 

I've just sent something this morning to one of the boards, that worked fine last week, and had an error message saying: 



The Trello board email address you attempted to email,[email address I sent to], is invalid. You can get your email address for any board by going to "Email-to-board Settings" under the sidebar menu in that board.

For more information on sending cards to your board via email, please visit our help page.


Help section isn't helping me. 

Any ideas why it's working one minute and then not the next?

Hi Lynsey,

Thanks for the context so far!

Would you mind generating a new email-to-board email address and let me know if that works? You can do so by opening up the Board Menu > More > Email-to-board settings. The email typically includes your username and a random string of characters. The email address is unique for each board and board member.

I did this last week with another board, and it worked once and then the same happened again. I thought it was "user" error, but it just feels so inconsistent. 


I'll try it again later today and come back to you.
