Frequently asked questions about Email in ClickUp.

Q: What happens if I delete the email in my inbox?

A: Emails added to ClickUp are preserved in the thread even if you delete the email in the inbox.

Q: Why can't I see email as an option under the comments section?

A: Email in ClickUp is a ClickApp! Make sure it is turned on by an owner or admin.

Q: Can I use an email alias or shared email address?
