Hi, I'm trying to modify the current behavior of the Email Capture Address to automatically create a contact based on the "To" field of the email instead of giving me a notification asking me whether to add a new contact or edit an existing one. I'm curious if a webhook is available that would allow me to perform this function anytime an email is sent with the Email Capture Address in the BCC line.
I'm also open to any other way of accomplishing this goal. For instance, if it helped to have a dummy contact with the Email Capture Address included as the contact's email, I'd be happy to do that. Thoughts?

Thanks for reaching out.
Webhooks do not support unassigned email notifications.
Unfortunately, At the moment, There is no way to add contacts automatically using the Email Capture Address.
I will propose the idea to the product team though.

Hi Sajed, thank you for the reply and clarification. I was particularly intrigued by the prospect of adding the email capture address to the BCC of a mail merge using GMass and creating contacts for all new email addresses from a list. I realize I can use the import contacts feature in the meantime, though.
The OnePageCRM Chrome extension is also useful for new individual contacts, though it bothers me that I cannot update information or next actions for existing contacts without navigating away from Gmail. This is ultimately my most desired feature and would definitely lead me to use the extension more frequently.
