How it Works

Postlingo works with your existing email account. You do not have to use a special "Postlingo email account" - you can just keep using your existing one.

Incoming Emails

Setting up Postlingo to translate incoming emails is very easy. You simply have to set up a filter rule in your email account to forward incoming emails to Postlingo. You have full control over which emails it forwards: you can set it up to forward all emails, or you can use conditions if you do not want to have all emails processed by Postlingo (assuming that your email provider supports filter rules with conditions).

Outgoing Emails

Postlingo automatically modifies the "reply" address of incoming emails that were translated. When you then reply to such an email then your message automatically goes through Postlingo, to translate it back to the original sender's language (the service keeps track of which language the original message was sent in). So there is no additional setup required to have your replies translated.

If you want to send a new message that is not a reply then you have several options. The easiest one is to send the email to a special Postlingo version of the recipients email address (more information). Your message will then be processed by Postlingo and then sent on to the final recipient.

There are also some other alternatives to have outgoing emails go through Postlingo. Please contact us if using the special email addresses does not work for you.
