Connecting a Mailbox
Updated over a week ago

It’s free to securely extract the last 90 days of contact and company details for up to three mailboxes.

You will first create a SigParser account. Then, you will be promoted to connect a mailbox. You will have the option to complete a free scan, or purchase a historical scan.

Note: It is always recommended to have a strong password in place and enable Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) for your email accounts.

Watch the following video for step-by-step instructions:

Step 1: Create a SigParser Account

  • Go to SigParser and select Start Free Trial

  • This will not scan your mailbox - just create an account.

  • Select one of the three sign in options to create an account (SSO via Google, Outlook, or enter an email and create a password).

    • If you sign in by entering an email and creating a password, you will receive an email notification asking you to verify your email to create your SigParser account.

Step 2: Connect Your Mailbox

  • You will be prompted to select a region, agree to the terms and conditions, and connect a mailbox. You will need to grant permission for the SigParser account to access your mailbox details.

    • If your email provider is not Google, Office 365, or Outlook, select the "IMAP" option.

  • Select your scan preference - you can choose to scan the past 90 days of history for free, or purchase historical scans.

  • Based on your scan selection, SigParser will scan your connected mailbox. This scan may take a few minutes or hours to complete, depending on the amount of content in your mailboxes.

  • You can close the browser or turn your computer off; the scan will still complete in the background.

  • If you connect multiple mailboxes, you can choose how much scanning to perform on each mailbox (the most recent 90 days up to ten years).

Connect More Mailboxes

To add and scan additional mailboxes:

  • Go to Mailboxes, select Add Mailbox, find your email provider and follow the connection instructions.

Once you have connected and scanned your mailboxes, you can do any of the following:

Scan Further Back or Subscribe for Ongoing Scans

  • Purchase up to ten years of historical scans for your connected mailboxes, or purchase a subscription and SigParser will continuously scan your mailboxes to capture fresh interactions.

  • Go to Mailboxes in your SigParser account. Select Scan More next to the mailbox you wish to scan. Then, purchase the amount of scanning you wish to complete.

Import & Export Contacts

  • Create targeted lists for marketing campaigns based on location, industry, title, and more. Import existing CSV files to create a robust, centralized relationship list.

  • Go to Contacts in your SigParser account. Select Export to download a CSV file of your scanned mailbox contacts. Select Import to upload a CSV list to your existing SigParser contact list.

Connect a CRM

  • When you connect a CRM such as Salesforce, HubSpot, or Pipedrive, SigParser can automatically update your CRM records with the most recent information from your scanned mailboxes. No more manual entry required!

  • Select Connectors from your SigParser account, then select +Add to connect your CRM (Professional or Enterprise subscription required).
