Connecting an email inbox to chat with customers over Email.

Email, short for electronic mail, is information exchanged between two users over telecommunications. Email messages may contain text, files, images or other attachments that can be sent through a network to a specified individual or group of individuals. If you would like to use respond.io platform for email messaging, you will need to provide access to your email inbox depending on the mail providers.

Currently, the platform has two methods of connecting email as a messaging channel.
