How to delete existing card, after adding new card with same name via email?

Hi there, 

I am using trello with its butler and fill my lists via emails. I am wondering how i can delete an existing card with butler, after I added a new card with the same name via email?

Background is that these mails are generated by my e-mail Software and that I want to display inside of several lists what E-Mail was sent (by sending copies to the board and by using same email subjects)


Thank you!

Try this :

when a card is emailed into the board,
find a card titled "{cardname}",
and archive the card.

Thank you! Let me check that...

By the way is the butler builder within "Create a Rule" the only way to make that step by step? Or can I copy your text anywhere directly in?



Easier to create a rule.

Do you mean creating the rule by clicking "+Add Trigger" , "Select an Action" and clicking all that buttons is the easiest way?


PS: Your rule helped me, thank you!
