LeadSquared Email Sync App

The Email Sync App allows you to capture leads and email activities in LeadSquared. It would connect to your email server and synchronize the received and sent emails.  Leads which are not present in LeadSquared 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 subject and body of the email.


1) Only the emails  in “Inbox” and “Sent” folders will be synced. No other email folder will be considered for synchronization.

2) The Email Sync app will work only for email servers supporting IMAP protocol. You users 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


You must be a LeadSquared Administrator user to install and set up the Email Sync App for your organization. Once the app is installed, any user can configure it to connect her inbox.

Select one of the three rules available for Email Sync:

1) Only emails to and from leads in LeadSquared:  Use this option if you don’t want any email message other than to/from leads that already exist in your LeadSquared account. If you are in doubt, choose this option.

2) All emails  to/from leads + emails received/sent with specific keywords in the subject:  Specify the keyword if you choose this option. Email  with the specified word in subject line from contacts who are not leads in LeadSquared will also sync if you choose this option.

 3) Every sent and received email : You may sync all incoming and outgoing emails.  Be very careful in choosing this option. It will results in ALL emails from ALL leads being captured inside LeadSquared.  The lead records and emails may be visible to all LeadSquared users.

Exclude emails if received on and sent from these domains (both sender and recipient on same domain”):  You can specify your own company domain so that your internal emails do not get synced.
