Email Channel Integration

On the Desk360 panel, you can follow up on your customer requests that reach out to you directly via your email address. To enable this, activate the email channel by navigating to Product and Channels > Edit Channels > Email. There are two ways to manage all customer emails in this channel.

1. Desk360 email server

When you add your product to Desk360 and enable the email channel, Desk360 creates an email address for your specific product, like You can view this address under the Desk360 Email Server list and opt to use it as the default email address for support requests. If you’re using more than one email for support, you can forward them to the address created by Desk360 and use it to manage all incoming messages. To integrate your own email address, just enter your DNS settings to your email server after entering the current address in the Your Own Email field.

2. Your own email server

If you wish, you can send and receive emails via Desk360 using your own email servers. To do this, just click on the Your Own Email Server tab and enter the necessary SMTP settings.

If you need to use your own server or a third-party email provider such as Gmail, Outlook, or Yandex, you can make use of this option to create and respond to support requests.
