Respond to previously send email automation

Hello everybody :slight_smile:
I would like to create an gmail automation with a reminder mail in response to a previously send email.

My example :

Trigger = a checkbox “send invoice” is valid
Action 1 = send email with invoice
Action 2 = send reminder email in response to the first mail (if i check some checkbox like “reminder mail”)

Could this be possible in airtable?

Thanks !

If you’re asking about making the second reminder email a literal reply to the first one (i.e. in the same thread), that’s not possible using Airtable. The best that you can do is add a "Re: " prefix to the subject line, but that just changes the subject, and there’s no guarantee that the recipient’s email client will treat it as a reply to the first message. I’m no email protocol wizard, but my understanding is that there’s other data in the email header that indicates when a given email is actually a reply to a previous email, and that header info isn’t accessible via Airtable.

Okay thanks for your reply anyway : )

My pleasure! If that provided a satisfactory answer to your question, please mark my comment (the one above, not this one) as the solution. This helps others who may be searching with similar questions. Thanks!

Hi @Panpi_Daguerre ,
I had a similar requirement and I was able to solve it by using Nodezap .
You can easily connect your airtable base with Nodezap and define your custom logic like data manipulation, send notifications etc.

Thanks and cheers.
