MIME E-mail forwarding script for Slack written in Python.





Getting Started

Install email2slack

From PyPI

# Install email2slack
pip install email2slack --upgrade

# Fetch configuration file from GitHub
cd /usr/local/etc/
curl -O

# Before using, You must edit config file
vim /usr/local/etc/email2slack

In this case, setuptools create script to call email2slack and place it in bin directory automatically. So you should use the script in Setup MTA section.

From GitHub repository

git clone
cd email2slack

# Install email2slack
pip install .
cp contrib/email2slack /usr/local/etc/

# Before using, You must edit config file
vim /usr/local/etc/email2slack

Optional: Install nkf

pip3 install nkf

Setup MTA


vim /etc/postfix/aliases


# notify only, not forward
user: |/usr/local/bin/

# notify and forward e-mail to another user
user: anotheruser, |/usr/local/bin/

# notify and leave e-mail on same user
user: \user, |/usr/local/bin/

# you can override default slack url, team and channel with command line option,
# which replace as default=value in each section.
# -s url / --slack url
# -t team-name / --team team-name
# -c channel-name / --channel channel-name
# -f /path/to/email2slack.conf / --config /path/to/email2slack.conf
user: "|/usr/local/bin/ -c '@user'"
another: "|/usr/local/bin/ -c '#random'"
