This Borealis Mail Handler lets you mass create email communications in Borealis by forwarding emails in batch to the Borealis Batch email address.

After identifying the emails, you can forward them in batch to create a communication of type 'email' for each one.

Additionally, these emails can be categorized using the Borealis Outlook Add-in to improve the classification and data accuracy of the email communications created in Borealis.

Examples of Use Cases for this features

  • A new project being managed in Borealis has many email communications that need to be created in the system,
  • A Question portal receives a high volume of emails each week and needs to have that data tracked in Borealis as email communications.

Before Starting

We normally recommend to limit the size of batch emails to 10MB; however, you should contact your IT department to verify whether your email server can support emails of this size.

  1. Open your Borealis instance and enter your login information.
  2. Click on your User Profile icon in the right hand corner of the top bar.
  3. Click on Email integration.
  4. In the 'Email integration' window, scroll down to Sending emails in batch.

After sending the batch email to Borealis, you should have received an automated email from the system. Reviewing this email will let you validate whether your batch emails were processed successfully by the system and whether warnings or errors occurred during the conversion process.
