The benefits of using SMTP by Connect and Slack, are that you can:
Send messages to your team in a timely manner, instead of them having to check their e-mails.
Synchronize Slack with your e-mail client for easier access to e-mails.
Integrate Slack with your e-mail client so you can send messages from Slack.
Be notified when you have a message in Slack.
If you want to send an email to your slack channel or to a specific user, it’s as easy as typing /mail <user>|<#channel name> <message> where <user> is the user that you want to send the e-mail to and <#channel name> is the channel that you want to send the e-mail to.
Since there is no official integration between SMTP by Connect and Slack, there are a few ways to do this. One way is to create a custom app in Slack with the fplowing URL. https://api.smtp.com/v1/api.json?apikey=<key>. Then, after that, go to the workspace settings of your team and under apps & integrations, click on Incoming WebHooks. In that section, paste the URL of your custom app and click on Add Configuration. Now, whenever a new e-mail is sent through SMTP by Connect, it will be sent to the Slack channel that you specified in the URL.
Another way is to use a Zapier integration. I would recommend this because you can choose which channels or users it sends it to and if you want it to only send when certain keywords are used in the subject or body of the e-mail. For example, if you were to send an email about a change in office hours, then you could use a keyword like “office hours” in the subject or body of the e-mail. With Zapier, you can filter by top level tags or any other text that you want it to contain. You can also try this out with Google Sheets, if you want it to be automatically updated every time someone sends an e-mail through SMTP by Connect.
One benefit of using SMTP by Connect and Slack together is that when someone sends an e-mail through SMTP by Connect, it will automatically appear in Slack so that the person doesn’t have to check their e-mail to see if there was anything important in there. Another benefit of using both together is that it allows people who don’t like using their e-mails for work related things to use something more convenient like Slack. By doing this, it saves them time from having to check their e-mails all the time and makes it easier for them to get things done without having to worry about checking their e-mails constantly. It also allows people who usually check their e-mails on their phone (as opposed to on a computer. to be able to see what they need to know while they’re on the go. Lastly, it allows people who don’t usually use their e-mails for work related things (for example, grocery shopping lists, etc.. easier access to them on their computers and mobile devices instead of having to use separate apps for this type of thing (such as Evernote.
