Email Sync App – Connecting your Inbox with LeadSquared

The Email Sync App allows you to capture leads and email activities in LeadSquared. It connects to your email server and synchronizes received and sent emails. Leads that are not present in your LeadSquared account will be created. Received and sent emails will be posted as activities on respective leads.

You can control which emails are synced and which are not based on domains of senders and recipients, and also keywords in the subject and body of the email.


  • Only the emails in “Inbox” and “Sent” folders will be synced. No other email folder will be considered for synchronization.
  • You must be using IMAP as protocol in your Email Client. If you use POP3 to send/receive emails, the sent emails will stay in your email client such as Outlook.   The sent-emails won’t be stored on our Email Server.  If you use IMAP, the Sent Emails are synchronized and also stored on your email server.  Since we connect to your email server to read sent emails, we won’t find them there if you use POP3.



This article assumes that you’ve already installed the Email Sync App. If you haven’t installed the app, see Installing the LeadSquared Email Sync App, for details.

There are three sections for the information you need to configure –

1. Inbox Details

Provide your email account and server details here. Normally, you would only need to review/update Email Server User name and Password. This is the username (email address) and password of your email account.
The other data on this page will be captured from details that your LeadSquared Administrator has already provided.

Global Inclusion/Exclusion Rule 

Before looking at the second section “Personal Inclusion/Exclusion Rules”, review the  Global Inclusion/Exclusion Rules. These rules have been set by your Admin for all LeadSquared users of your organization.

The rules define which emails from your inbox and outbox are synced with LeadSquared.

Personal Inclusion/Exclusion Rules

You can setup personal inclusion/exclusion rules which will be additional to global rules.  For example, you may exclude emails from your friends and family.

Personal Exclusions

Exclude emails when sent to these individuals (outgoing email):Separate multiple emails by comma or space. Ex: contact1@mydomain1.com, contact2@mydomain2.com

Exclude emails when subject/body of the message contains these keywords: Separate multiple keywords by comma. Ex: personal, family

Include emails ONLY when subject/body contains these keywords: Separate multiple emails by comma. Ex: proposal, sales

Now go to Inbox Details tab and press “Connect my Inbox”.
