Manage Your CosmoLex Inbox

CosmoLex integrates with your current email provider to organize your firm’s emails on the matter level and incorporate them into your billing workflow.

Integrating does not replace your everyday email tool. You continue to send/receive regular communication as you normally do, but the integration allows you to seamlessly archive this communication under a particular matter along with other matter-related information.

This integration allows email attachments up to 100MB. 

Tag Emails to Matters

Auto-tagging

When you set up your email integration, there are two auto-tagging options from which you can choose.

Automatically tag emails to matter when client’s primary email address match to/from address

With this option, the system only looks for matches with the client’s primary email address you enter in their contact information. 

Automatically tag emails to matter when client’s other party email addresses match to/from address

With this option, the system looks for matches with the email addresses of additional parties you enter within the client’s contact information. 


When either one of these options is active, auto-tagged emails are automatically filed under the the Tagged subfolder of your CosmoLex email inbox.

Untagged Emails

You will inevitably end up with untagged items for which the system could not find a match and did not automatically tag to a matter.

To locate the untagged items.

  1. From the main screen’s toolbar, click the untagged items icon.

The system moves the email to the Tagged folder and displays it within the matter’s details.

Multi-Match

Under the Activities section, the Email screen’s Multi Match filter includes emails marked with an M. These untagged emails matched multiple matters and therefore remained tagged.

To view the matches associated with those emails, click on the M label.

Important

You cannot untag an email from a matter if you recorded and/or billed time for it.

Delete Emails

There may be an email unrelated to a client and unnecessary to have in CosmoLex. Since this integration is not a sync, these emails are copies independent from your email tool and deleting items from CosmoLex will not delete this item from your normal email inbox.

  2. From the Activities left navigation, click Emails.
  3. On the Emails screen, check the boxes beside the emails you want to delete.

    The system deletes the emails.
Note

The system automatically empties the trash folder every 30 days.
