Add email trigger

An email trigger runs a TaskBot when an email is received in a particular email account.

Version 11.3.5If you choose the server type as the Exchange Web Services (EWS) using OAuth authentication, the Tenant ID and Client ID fields are mandatory although the interface displays these fields as optional because they can be skipped for Basic Authentication. The recommended practice is to use OAuth authentication for enhanced security.

Configure online EWS for OAuth authentication
