Rick,

Right now the email trigger works with Exchange only. There will be an update in a future version that will support IMAP and POP3. For now, you will need to use the schedule trigger and email action and check the email based on an interval.

Thanks that wont work unfortunately. I have a z-wave smart home with smartthings hub. I was going to use the web site IFTTT to send me an email when the front door was unlocked then use Automate to check for an email with a particular subject line and then play a sound file. Any tips
Thanks Rick

Hi Rick,

You could create a scheduled task to actively check your gmail account for the message. Then use an If to determine if the sound file should be played or not. Under message filters there is an option to limit the search by a time range, such as last 30 minutes.
